We use a social bookmarking service called Delicious to save and display a wide range of web resources such as links to dance and arts agencies and associations, other dance libraries and archives, journal tables of contents services, on-line publications, research catalogues, videos and so on.

What are tags?

Tags are simply words used to describe your links. They can only consist of one word. There is not a limit to the number of tags which can be added to a bookmark and they can be easily added to or removed from a bookmark.

What are tag bundles?

Tag bundles are groups of bookmarks sharing the same tag/tags. They are a little bit like subject headings to a list of internet resources.

How do I search?

There are different ways of retrieving/locating bookmarks

  • Use the search engine which goes through bookmark descriptions, notes and tags.
  • Select a specific tag bundle and browse through the listed resources.
