1Xu, C. ; Ma, B. ; Chen, X. ; Ma, F.: Social tagging in the scholarly world.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 64(2013) no.10, S.2045-2057.
Abstract: The number of research studies on social tagging has increased rapidly in the past years, but few of them highlight the characteristics and research trends in social tagging. A set of 862 academic documents relating to social tagging and published from 2005 to 2011 was thus examined using bibliometric analysis as well as the social network analysis technique. The results show that social tagging, as a research area, develops rapidly and attracts an increasing number of new entrants. There are no key authors, publication sources, or research groups that dominate the research domain of social tagging. Research on social tagging appears to focus mainly on the following three aspects: (a) components and functions of social tagging (e.g., tags, tagging objects, and tagging network), (b) taggers' behaviors and interface design, and (c) tags' organization and usage in social tagging. The trend suggest that more researchers turn to the latter two integrated with human computer interface and information retrieval, although the first aspect is the fundamental one in social tagging. Also, more studies relating to social tagging pay attention to multimedia tagging objects and not only text tagging. Previous research on social tagging was limited to a few subject domains such as information science and computer science. As an interdisciplinary research area, social tagging is anticipated to attract more researchers from different disciplines. More practical applications, especially in high-tech companies, is an encouraging research trend in social tagging.

Abstract: In 2006 the University of Manitoba's (UM) Libraries and Learning Technologies Centre collaborated to create an online tutorial to support the development of international students' information literacy skills. The International Student project addressed the unique needs of foreign students by using a broad spectrum definition of information literacy, which includes supporting development of social and cultural skills as well as information-seeking ones. In addition to informational content, the developers incorporated Web 2.0 functionality to enable students to interact outside of the classroom. The final product was placed in the university's new Virtual Learning Commons, a webspace designed to be a central location for online learning and discussion.

5Boettcher, J. ; Kingma, B.R.: Telephone directories : alternatives to print.
In: Reference services review. 22(1994) no.2, S.53-61.
Abstract: Telephone directories are one of the most used sources of information in a reference collection. As the library literature indicates, they are a stable reference tool with a strong history of use. Further, it has been observed that telephone directories are familiar to most users, and resources such as the community pages and yellow pages are used extensively. However, the emergence of CD-ROM technology and libraries being charged for printed directories has raised questions concerning the future of an all-print telephone directory collection in libraries. Yet, evaluation of acquisitions alternatives for these resources is largely missing in the library literature. In this article, Boettcher and Kingma review the literature regarding the use of telephone directories in academic and public libraries and provide a cost analysis of the four purchasing options regarding telephone directories: printed directories, directory assistance, Phonefiche, and CD-ROMs
