Facilitates info discovery (of vetted resources) I’ve found and shared VERY GOOD info with my team who said, “Where did you find that?” Supports teams, subject area social networks, virtual communities Our project teams bookmark relevant resources with a project-specific tag and also use onomi to point to project deliverables located in Sharepoint and other web servers. When I look up bookmarks on a certain topic, it’s nice to see who else is interested in the same thing. Feeds expertise finding I was called by someone who had seen some of my bookmarks on visualization and was interested in learning more. Augments info access I needed specific domain information, and this is gave me better hits than enterprise search. Expands knowledge stewardship to others Bookmarking is so easy and fast. It is helping the librarians expand knowledge stewardship out to others.
