Diigo helps you track and share your online research finds.

Ever find an ancestor's name on a long Web page and wish you could attach a sticky note to it for easier retrieval later? Alas, Web pages change and Post-it Notes fall off your computer screen. But a new browser tool, Diigo <www.diigo.com>, makes it possible to not only highlight and annotate parts of Web pages, but also to share your notes with fellow researchers.

Diigo (pronounced “dee-go”) stands for Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff, and calls itself a “a social annotation and networking service.” But what's hiding under the hood of this free Web tool is a powerful research assistant.
