IN THE LIBRARY Applications Motivations For the Library BY: KATY BOGART JEANNE KLIEWER AMANDA MEEKS VISAKHA SEON BETSY SUMMERS PATRICK WOHLMUT Why does that word keep popping up? Activity! Social Bookmarking del.icio.us "you could think of it as
starting with self-interest,
but then through sharing
bookmarks and tags with
others it becomes
enlightened self-interest." Delicious VP
Chris Fralik The Power of Delicious Tag, you're it! http://slim.emporia.edu/ http://www.delicious.com/uncontrolledvocabulary These are some tasty
bookmarks K Bogart has
saved on Delicious. Want to
start saving your own?
"Proof that librarians can
even create order amid the
chaos of the Internet" -Green http://www.delicious.com/SanMateoLibrary Delicious Libraries What were you
doing in 2006? Twitter users created and
introduced their own system
of social tagging. I am eating a sandwich now. #yummy

My wife's Chili con Carne is #yummy. Too bad it gave me indigestion. Rolaids, anyone?

Whenever I see my roommate's boyfriend, I think he would be really, really #yummy with chocolate sauce.

I just mixed my band's entire new album on the iMac. #yummy sounds, people.
When you're an adult, you can
eat Ben and Jerry's ice cream
for lunch all you want. (#yummy)

@PlaywrightsWest >attendshttp://fertilegroundpdx.org Twitter tags don't just organize content, they inspire the creation
of it. The question then is . . . . . . . how do we use it in the library? Why tag in the library catalog? "No single access word, however well chosen, can be expected to cover more than a small proportion of user's attempts." ~Furnas et. all (1987) For the Library For the Patron create reading lists/subjects guides
make catalog more accesible/user friendly
learn about patrons likes/dislikes
staff can contribute tags-become more active in library community http://seattle.bibliocommons.com/ http://catalog.mylibrary.us/ edited by librarians

tagging can only be done outside catalog

unable to search by tag w/in actalog

inexpenisve add on application/easy to use

over 70 millions tags tagging is done by category

personal tags remain personal

tagging is done w/in OPAC

more expensive requires more commitment

communtiy credits can be earned for "prizes"
increases access points/partcipation

adapts quickly to users needs and vocabulary both future retrieval
sharing and contribution
attracting attention
play and competition
self presentation
opinion expressing
+ = What's unique about Delicious and its organization of information? (#yummy)
