Liberal arts campus academic program moving to Del.icio.us

Lewis and Clark College’s environmental studies program is moving to social bookmarking service del.icio.us for Web resource management. According to a local librarian, this is to be a

system for developing a collection of research resources focused on local and regional/international research sites.

Librarian Mark Dahl reflects on this project as part of a much broader strategy:

The move to using generic Web 2.0 applications to push forward academic projects like this one and accessCeramics is interesting. These applications aren’t built for organizational use in the academy, but they are so far ahead in flexibility, usability, and Web 2.0 philosophy of what we have to use within our academic specific software realm (RefWorks, Moodle, etc.) that they become compelling.
