Week 7 Tagging at PhM

Here is an interesting link from the Powerhouse Museum, they encourge user generated tags and see them as a way of expanding access.

When I'm tagging their photos in Flickr I like to refer to the Australian Pictorial Thesaurus and will also mention it in discussion groups when members wonder how to properly tag their own images. However a combination of the intuitive and the formal is now emerging, which although anathema to our profession, will I think, and perhaps has already, become the norm out there in userland.
