McNeese State University docs dept gets del.icio.us

Over at the new Library 2.0 Government Documents Group, Rebecca Troy-Horton reports that her library’s documents department has opened up a del.icio.us account at http://del.icio.us/MSUGovDoc.

Her links are annotated and look like a good way to provide context to documents link. We at FGI look forward to seeing her growing list and seeing how Rebecca’s tag cloud works out.

If your local depository library has a del.icio.us account, would you let us know in comments below? Perhaps docs del.icio.us users could build a network like James R. has suggested from time to time. Knowing who we are is an important first step.

  1. Wow! Thanks for mentioning our service! This is so exciting. I’m still adding more links everyday. The link cloud can now be seen on our website homepage too. Check it out! It was difficult using Java applets in FrontPage (we haven’t switched to our new CMS yet…thinking about acquiring Joomla) but it turned out ok. It will look even better when we get our new CMS up and running and the department website will look better.

    a very nice govdocs home page!

    nicely done Jennie and Rebecca. We’re going to add the feeds for docs delicious accounts to the FGI aggregator. This is a great way to keep track of Web sites of interest to the docs world and to do collection development. If you find a fugitive document, don’t just send it in to GPO, tag it for the community!!

    And if we all use the same tag for fugitive docs, we can get them all in one place with an rss feed. How about FugitiveDoc? Then they’d all be together at http://del.icio.us/tag/FugitiveDoc.

    Who will be the first to put something there?

    “And besides all that, what we need is a decentralized, distributed system of depositing electronic files to local libraries willing to host them.” — Daniel Cornwall, tipping his hat to Cato the Elder for the original quote.

    Thank you! It’s still a work-in-progress that is evolving. :-)

  6. Jennie says:

    Ok, not nearly as impressive as MSU’s, but we have just started a tag cloud on del.icio.us based on the GovPubs blogs postings, check it out here: http://del.icio.us/govpubs or on the blog here: http://cubgovpubs.blogspot.com/.

    That’s great news! I notice that MSUGovDoc is listed in the freegovinfo delicious network! And don’t forget to click on delicious help for tips and directions for integrating tag clouds and link rolls into your web pages, subscribing to tags and others’ accts, etc.

    And here’s some posts that posit that delicious is a better search than google because of the collaborative tagging of only the best sites:
