Navigate Bookmarks resources 

Describes how to navigate from one Bookmarks resource to another using the resources made available through the API.

When you create an application that accesses Bookmarks resources, do not construct URLs to Bookmarks resources; instead write code to follow the links from the user's service document to the user's my bookmarks collection, and then to each individual bookmark.

The following diagram illustrates how to navigate from the service document to all the available Bookmarks resources.

Identifies the order in which to access the resources.
The following table describes the available Bookmarks resources.
