What is tagging?

Tagging lets you describe a book, movie, or CD in your own words. You can add your own tags to any item in our catalog. You can see all the tags for a book, movie, or CD or you can look at your own tags. Larger words have been used as tags (for an item or by you) more frequently than smaller tags.

On this site, tags are separated by spaces and multi-word tags are put in quotes. So green apples are two tags but  "green apples" is one tag.

You can search the catalog by tag. If you want to edit your tags, you can change them from the list view of your tags.

A group of tags is called a tag cloud. This is the tag cloud for the books blog from the last website (artistically arranged by Wordle.net).
