Columbus, Ohio, October 24-29, 2008


Social tagging or collaborative tagging is a new trend in information organization, management, and discovery for digital information. Folksonomy is a collection of tags assigned to online information by all participants of social tagging systems. There is no information retrieval capable of discerning relevancy of information associated with Folksonomy. We propose a conceptual framework of IR for Folksonomy on the basis of Library of Congress Subject Headings. Algorithms for constructing the conceptual framework are described. Values of the framework are discussed.
