  • What are Tags? Tags are words that mean something Sometimes called labels, categories, or keywords Things that are tagged can have many tags i.e. not like folders, where only one copy resides
  • Folksonomy Tags are personal; a “folksonomy” not “taxonomy” A folksonomy is the practice of organizing information using spontaneous, collaboratively generated, open-ended labels to annotate or categorize content
  • Tagging Best Practices Tag ideas, concepts and events Use nouns if possible The best tags are narrow and specific apple is too broad, mac better, mac osx best Give preference to singular base Limit abbreviations Consider modifying bookmark title: article title « source Take full advantage of notes: [comment] “quote from webpage”
  • Multi-Word Tags In most cases tag separately if each word use in a future topic search significant: lamp shade not significant: san francisco You never are going to search for “san” Multi-word tags are typically compacted sanfrancisco, christopherallen Proper words often camel-cased SanFrancisco, ChristopherAllen
  • Tagging Best Practices Be consistent Think of what words others may use Periodically review and update your tags When you successfully find a bookmark from the past, add a new tag
  • BGI Conventions Use ‘bgiedu’ for web pages about BGI, but not other webpages Use ‘bgimgt’ for any course related webpages Label for specific course, e.g. ‘bgimgt564”, ‘bgimgt566sx’, etc. Use ‘mywriting’, ‘myprofile’ for your own work Add http://delicious.com/bgiedu to your Delicious network Send your Delicious account name to socialweb@bgi.edu to get added to BGI’s bookmark network.
