Tagging Podcast

This has already been covered in many places, but just in case you missed it, the new Takling with Talis podcast discusses tagging.
The Library 2.0 Folksonomy Gang

In this Library 2.0 Gang discussion, members talk about folksonomies and the role of user-generated tagging alongside more formal methods of classification such as the Library of Congress Subject Headings and Dewey.

Programme participants were drawn, as usual, from the full list of Gang members, and a forum is available for discussion of issues raised during the recording.

Participants in this edition of the Library 2.0 Gang were;
  • Casey Bisson, Library Information Technologist at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, USA. Casey blogs at maisonbisson.
  • Ian Corns, Business Analyst at Talis. Ian contributes to the Source blog, and writes at The Wonderful World of Mr C.
  • Christina Pikas, librarian in a physics, astronomy, mathematics, computer science & engineering library. Christina blogs at Christina's LIS Rant.
  • Karen Schneider, Director of the Librarians' Internet Index. Karen blogs at Free Range Librarian.
  • Tim Spalding, founder of LibraryThing. Tim blogs at the LibraryThing blog and Thing-ology.
