Social Tagging for Linked Data Across Environments: A New Approach to Discovering Information Online

Louise Spiteri (Editor), Diane Pennington (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Social tagging, hashtags, and geotags are used across a variety of platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, WordPress, Instagram) in different countries and cultures. This book, representing researchers and practitioners across different information professions, explores how social tags can link content across a variety of environments.

Most studies of social tagging have tended to focus on applications like library catalogues, blogs, and social bookmarking sites. This book, in setting out a theoretical background and the use of a series of case studies, explores the role of hashtags as a form of linked data - without the complex implementation of RDF and other Semantic Web technologies.

Social Tagging for Linking Data across Environments will be useful reading for practicing library and information professionals who implement electronic access to collections, including cataloguers, systems developers, information architects and web developers. It would also be useful for students taking programmes on Library/Information science, Information Management, Computer Science, and Information Architecture.
