Web 2.0 Encore at WMRLS: Today Delicious

Delicious (formerly, pronounced "delicious") is a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks.” (Wikipedia)

We are using it as a tool for staff to push out links to our patrons. Instead of a list of links on our website that is static, we can use tags and a link feed to push out new bookmarks to patrons. Also, the tools for link clean up make dead links easy to maintain.
