Add Your Tags to Digital Collections at Yale University Library

In support of a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Library's Web, Workstation and Digital Consulting Services department has developed a tagging application for the Library's digital collections. To add tags or annotations, visit: http://images.library.yale.edu/digitalcollectionsajax/StartTagging.aspx.

Feature list:
* Tag or annotate an object. (You can remove your tags or annotations later if you want.)
* View all tags in a tag cloud.
* View just your own tags.
* Search using tags or terms in annotations.
* View the number of times a tag occurs with another tag.
* View objects by tag(s).

If you are new to tagging, you may find the following resources useful:

The tagging application is intended for use by the Yale community and requires CAS authentication. Tags and annotations are stored separately from metadata created by library staff.

This is very much a work in progress and the Library welcomes feedback. Please send comments, questions, and suggestions regarding the tagging application to Mike Friscia.
