Comments from some of those who selected Diigo as one of their Top Tools

“Diigo – one of my university lecturers introduced me to this tool last year. I have found it fantastic for storing and categorising useful links for my own use and to share these with others. It’s also a useful way to create a set of links to useful articles relative to our formal training programs to house pre or post reading material.”

“Bookmarks are my external memory. In the course of researching two books, I’ve created nearly 3,000 bookmarks. A side benefit is the ability to share your bookmarks with other.” Jay Corss

“Although the functionality of an online bookmarking tool overlaps with Evernote, I find Diigo to be more convenient for saving bookmarks. So much of the appeal of a tool is the simplicity of its user interface and functionality. Diigo does well in both these categories, in my opinion. The tagging and search features are straightforward. And you can add a Diigo toolbar to your browser. This is an excellent way to bookmark articles for future research or reading.” Connie Malamed, 2014
