CREATING GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF LIBRARY USERS WITH OPEN-HYBRID TAXONOMY & FOLKSONOMY 72 OPEN - HYBRID TAXONOMY & FOLKSONOMY IN ACTION Record - 1 Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Carnivora Family: Felidae Genus: Panthera Species: tigris <ul><li>Title: Bride & Prejudice </li></ul><ul><li>Subjects: </li></ul><ul><li>Man Woman relationships Drama </li></ul><ul><li>Musical Films </li></ul><ul><li>Feature Films </li></ul>ISBN: 0788858467 Pride & Prejudice Aishwarya Rai Sher Khan Rudyard Kipling Tiger INTERACTIVE TAGGING EXAMPLE Record - 2 OVERVIEW While information seekers routinely query web search engines using natural language search terms with ease, the library catalogs and other knowledge organization systems are viewed as too complicated because of the controlled formal taxonomies used as search terms provided by classification systems such as LCSH, DDC, or MeSH. It is imperative to come to a common ground for easy information retrieval by using a hybrid of taxonomy and folksonomy or socially collaborative tagging. Semantic web technologies enable users to create tags to categorize information in their own context . Research shows this tagging approach augments controlled subject headings by providing richer metadata which enhances additional findability of resources for global communities.

Also known as ‘controlled vocabulary’, it is used for structuring information for easier management and retrieval. It forms the basis of classification and indexing systems in information management. </li></ul><ul><li>Taxonomies help users search organized resources such as catalogs and databases. </li></ul><ul><li>Limitations of Taxonomy </li></ul><ul><li>Understood by few experts only </li></ul><ul><li>Subject terms as perceived by author </li></ul><ul><li>Controlled and Limiting </li></ul><ul><li>Unaccessed information = Lost customer </li></ul><ul><li>WHAT IS FOLKSONOMY? </li></ul><ul><li>It is an alternative grassroots approach to categorization bringing natural language to the search arena. </li></ul><ul><li>Folksonomy begins with tagging. Labels called “tags” make searches more effective as the vocabulary used for tags is user-generated. </li></ul><ul><li>Cumulative force of all the individual tags produces a bottom-up, self-organized system for classifying information . </li></ul><ul><li>Limitations of Folksonomy </li></ul><ul><li>Folksonomic tagging contributes to the abundance of irrelevant or inaccurate information and is referred to as &quot;Meta Noise&quot;. </li></ul>

S. Department of State Washington, D.C., USA Email : BhatnagarAB@state.gov Email : alka_b@yahoo.com LinkedIn : http://www.linkedin.com/in/alkabbhatnagar Empower the user. Offer a hybrid system of taxonomy and folksonomy for ease of information discovery. In this process the controlled and precise taxonomy created by an expert stays exactly unchanged and the user generated folksonomy supplements it with additional synonyms and semantically related terms representing their knowledge, expertise, social and cultural background, interpretation, and/or their interests. <ul><ul><li>Broad folksonomic approach tends to show the long tail effect as seen above. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enhanced user experience and ease of resource discovery for global community. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Content resonates with diverse audiences and populations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Creates inclusiveness and globalization of user communities. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Global users contributing to content creates global communities of library users . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Community specific tags help more relevant searches. </li></ul></ul>Taxonomy And Folksonomy Disclaimer: All logos and copyrights belong to their respective organizations.
