Group Project

Nat, Andrew, and I did our group project on Folksonomies, Social Tagging & Del.icio.us Pathfinders.  Our PowerPoint can be found at  http://nsundell.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/lis768presentation.ppt  Nat did a great job of summing up our group efforts toward learning more on this subject, including figuring out just where we were going with the subject.  I think using Chicago as the topic for our Subject Guide contributed to the success of our project as we each have special areas of interest when it comes to our fabulous city.  The wiki that we set up for group collaboration worked ok, but possibly, because of the nature of our project, it didn’t seem that important.  Because our project was developed within our Del.icio.us account, it was easy to always see who was adding which web sites and how the overall project was progressing.  I was grateful for the various contributions from other members of the group in the development and presentation of this subject.  In the end, I found that I would have liked to have had more time to expand my exploration of tagging in relationship to cataloging and OPACs.  I think it will be interesting to watch future developments in the area of social tagging.
