Social Bookmarking: Connotea Day 1

I've just subscribed to a social bookmarking website which name is connotea.

At the first glance, it's not really easy to use, and it seems complicated, so I will do a small connotea tutorial to make it easier to use.

For today, I just registered and I found my first 'difficulty': OpenURL Links.

I don't know what is an Open Url Link. Hopefully, you can find out very easily on their site.

An OpenURL is a link, constructed to a standard format, that carries bibliographic information.

Do you remember the card catalog? Everything in a library was represented in the card catalog with one or more cards carrying bibliographic information.

OpenURL is the internet equivalent of those index cards. When someone clicks on an OpenURL link, the bibliographic information it contains is sent to a library internet service.

You can find more informations on OpenURl here: OpenUrl Links

Tag and Ping Tip:
When you register with the social bookmarking websites, be sure to have the same username and password.

This way, you will be able to find your favorite bookmarks from any computer, and from anywhere!

Until then...
