Fall 2016 Final Project: Folksonomies in Libraries

For our LIS 653 Fall 2016 final project, we examined the extent to which libraries are currently using folksonomies in order to discuss the opportunities and limitations of this method of organizing information. Our project explored current research and conversations about folksonomies in LAMs, and compared the functions of folksonomies to those of conventional and established ontologies used by libraries. Additionally, we investigated how museums utilize folksonomies to discuss the usefulness of museum practices as a model for libraries.

Our poster is included below, and you can see our slides here.
