Add A Tag

You can add a tag to any item in the Library's catalog. For example, if you are working on a project, you may decide to tag all of the relevant materials to that topic. Or, if you are interested in a hobby, you may want to tag items relevant to the hobby. This social function of the catalog helps you, and others, find materials. In essence, you are helping the Library by adding more keywords to our catalog of items. You can then search the catalog by these terms and refine your materials by tags.
