Sometimes you will have an exact web address memorized that you will
go directly to it. For example, if you consider BBC World to be a reliable
news source, you will likely memorize its URL and then you would
type it in the URL window:
often, the URL is long and difficult to memorize. And more
often when users come across web sites they want to return,
they would rather not want to spend time writing down or word
processing web addresses. So you bookmark the site or favorite it--these
options are available right from your browsers.
days, once you find reliable web sites, saving your web sites in
bookmark managers such as Del.icio.us and
StumbleUpon is a
guaranteed way for you to be able to retrieve your information
whether at home, at work, or at the computer lab at school.
Bookmark Managers also allow you to share what you have found with other people
you are working with on a team research project, with friends, or
other people who have similar interests.
