The World Wide Web serves as the primary source of many information requirements. The Semantic Web and related technologies provide an infrastructure to organise data based on its semantics. Since the web has grown exponentially, it is difficult to keep track of all individual preferences. The system proposed here, Boek, enables users to organise semantically a subset of web data. Boek can store links to web pages and retrieve them later based on semantic information. Boek also holds reserved space for its users to store their favourite data semantically. The individual data models can then be combined to form a universal data store which can then act as a knowledge base for everyone. Future work will involve extending Boek to address a number of do-mains such as business, medicine, education and the creative industries.
