Rich Tags: Cross-Repository Browsing

Smith, Daniel Alexander, Lambert, Joe and schraefel, m c (2008) Rich Tags: Cross-Repository Browsing At Open Repositories Conference 2008 (OR2008), United Kingdom. 01 - 04 Apr 2008.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We present RichTags, a system for cross-site browsing and exploration of digital repositories. Categorical and faceted search across repositories is poorly supported, especially compared to the support of keyword search through internet search engines. We combine a variety of information retrieval techniques to determine categories of papers, to enable cross-repository browsing by category. The browsing and exploration of this metadata is achieved through a multi-faceted dynamic exploration interface. Social interaction features have also been added to enable cross-repository tagging, commenting and sharing of papers into groups. These social features are available via an API to enable future work to add plugins to pull comments back to the repositories.
