Tags - what weight that word has for us. How many of us first picture the messy scrawled marking defacing our suburbs.

Is this the turnaround that we need to make away from formal Library of Congress subject headings that are for 'those in the know' to an external tagging of items, informal and somewhat uncontrolled yet with a life and community of its own.

I'm inrtigued to see that libraries ar embracing tags to make their information more user-friendly'

I can't wait to spend some time on with my favourite websites, looking to see what else there is that others have discovered.
