Delicious (formerly del.icio.us) allows you to save bookmarks to any website or online object (document, picture, video, map, pdf - anything with a url) to a personal profile that you can access whenever you are connected to the internet. You can "tag" each of your bookmarks as well as name and describe them in ways that are meaningful to you.

Delicious provides downloadable buttons and plug-ins that make saving websites easy to do with one mouse click. In addition, many online sites, including the photo-sharing site Flickr and the research database vendor EBSCO, provide delicious buttons within their sites that make it easy to save items to a delicious account.

Many delicious users tag sites with specific course or research project names, collating helpful websites, articles and images as they use the internet to look for information. And since these are all saved online, it is easy to share what you have found with classmates or research partners by simply sending them the url for that tag in your delicious account.
