Tags Help Make Libraries Del.icio.us

September 17, 2007

A recent article by Melissa L. Rethlefsen in Library Journal, highlights some of the ways that tags help make libraries del.cio.us.

Social bookmarking and tagging tools discussed include del.icio.us, LibraryThing, and LibMarks.

Key reasons for using social bookmarking and tagging tools:

  • enhance user’s web experience
  • simple and quick way to post links with comments and create subject guides
  • lowers barriers for participation and provides an equal voice for both staff and readers
  • instant access to bookmarks and links — anywhere, anytime
  • use tagging tools to enhance collections and label books in ways that make more sense to users
