The utility of controlled vocabularies within bookmark management tasks

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

This research investigates the utility of adopting a controlled vocabulary approach to bookmark management. An initial user survey conducted for this research has shown that just over half the population use bookmarks to save important websites and that 75% of these people use up to three sub-levels only. The bookmark facility within all current web browsers is therefore underutilized and the argument that users need and want greater freedom and flexibility to create their own unique file structure is disputed. We conclude that users need a simple, logical and contextual system of bookmark management which complements their daily lives.
