Click To Play Video

Harvard University Libraries hosted a forum this week, “Social Tagging @ Harvard: A Del.ici.ous Alternative or Passing Flickr?,” that looked at the online practice of tagging and sought to weigh the separate techniques to determine the best method of taxonomy.

Participants include:

  • David Weinberger, Berkman Center for Internet and Society fellow, will talk about the significance of Web 2.0, social bookmarking and tagging technologies.
  • Michael Hemment (pictured above), research librarian and head of scholarly research initiatives at Widener Library, will demonstrate social bookmarking in action, examine the PENNTags project, and discuss implications for scholarly research and libraries.
  • Carla Lillvik, research and distance services librarian at Gutman Library, will examine tagging and social tagging within the context of other bibliographic management solutions available to Harvard researchers, like RefWorks, EndNote, and the My Research tool in E-Research @ Harvard Libraries.
  • Adam Seldow, graduate student in the Harvard Graduate School of Education, will discuss his Edtags initiative, recipient of a Provost Innovation Fund grant.

    […] Locran Dempsey weist auf einen Ende März stattgefundenen Workshop über Tagging an der Harvard University Libraries hin (Berichte bei bei Joho the Blog (David Weinberger) und MediaBerkman, Teil 1, Teil 2. Auf dem letzten Bibliothekartag kam die Idee auf, nächstes Jahr (Mannheim, 03.-06.06.2008) eine eigene Veranstaltung zu Tagging zu machen, auf der etwas detaillierter auf, LibraryThing & Co. eingegangen werden könnte. Auch die nächste INETBIB-Tagung (9.4. bis 11.4.2008 in Würzburg) wäre ein geeigneter Rahmen dafür (die Diskussion dazu auf Bibliothek 2.0 bei Ning scheint eingeschlafen zu sein – Ning ist halt auch doch nicht so praktisch). Mein umfassendes Paper “Tagging, Folksonomy & Co – Renaissance of Manual Indexing?” ist übrigens endlich zum 10. Internationalen Symposium für Informationswissenschaft (ISI 2007, 30. Mai – 1. Juni 2007, Köln) angenommen, ich spreche Freitag früh. Tags: Veranstaltung, Bibliothek, Tagging | […]
