1X1If you are working on a project or planning a trip, Google’s Bookmark Lists offer an easy way to organize and share the links you find. To use Google Bookmarks, you must have a Google account or create one. Once you log into Google, start searching through Google and click on the star next to any links, maps or videos that you find interesting.

To access your starred links, go to your Google Bookmarks homepage. To organize your bookmarks into a list, just click on the Create New List button.

Private – Nobody can see it
Public – Anybody can find it and view it
Share with select people – Those people can now add links and comments to your list
