The J. Paul Leonard Library is one of the first Academic libraries in the United States to add tags and recommendations from LibraryThing to our Online Catalog. For over 190,000 books in our Main Library collection, you can see tags and other recommended books in our collection generated from the data that LibraryThing collects from its 276,000 users.
For example, see the tags for the book, Infotopia in Investigator (click on the “details” tab to see the LibraryThing information). For more detailed information about the theory behind tagging in library catalogs, see the short paper by librarian, John Wenzler. ”
