      This is a very comprehensive article.  

       

      Here is a short note I posted a couple of months back on the topic.

      I've now had a chance to review the Sarah Hayman paper (and have done so at http://www.greencha meleon.com/ gc/blog_detail/ folksonomies_ in_the_enter) and it looks like a very interesting proof of concept, involving auto-complete tagging - users start typing their tags, and a thesaurus in the background suggests controlled taxonomy terms. Users can accept the suggested terms or still submit their own. The tool is supplemented by a tag cloud showing the frequency of use of both controlled terms and uncontrolled terms in the same cloud. A very interesting project, the paper is well worth a read. There are links to other blog posts on this project in the comments to my blog post linked above.

       

      Best
