Alice Sneary: October 2008 Archives
You've probably already noticed the cool new tags that you see around WorldCat now. As of last week, we have over 3,000 tags. Which is not nearly as many as we hope to have- but we're off to a great start.
You can add as many tags, or personalized category descriptions, as you would like to an unlimited set of items. Once you're signed in, you can apply tags from the "Add to It" section or the Tags tab on an item's details page. View and maintain all your personalized tags from your WorldCat profile page. And yes, you can also browse other people's tags, too.
The new tagging feature is the first of a number of planned enhancements related to tagging that will include keyword searching of tags. Stay tuned as even more tagging functionality and display options are incorporated over the coming months.
