    Software for tagging eprints in Eprints archives

    New Connotea software supports institutional repositories, a press
    release from the Nature Publishing Group, March 10, 2006.


    Nature Publishing Group (NPG) has released new software which enables institutional
    repositories running EPrints to integrate with the social bookmarking
    services Connotea and This latest innovation allows
    content within institutional repositories to be bookmarked, tagged,
    and linked to related content. The work behind this development
    was funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC)
    as part of their PALS Metadata and Interoperability Projects 2
    program. Once installed in a repository, the software will enable
    users to bookmark documents in that repository using their Connotea
    or account, assigning their own tags and without leaving
    the web page. They can also see what tags have already been assigned
    to the document they are viewing in the repository and click on
    links to related content, either within the same repository or
    elsewhere on the web. If bookmarked in Connotea, the bibliographic
    metadata for the institutional repository item can be automatically
    imported. Connotea already does this for items bookmarked from several
    other sources, including Nature, PubMed, Science, Blackwell Synergy,
    Wiley Interscience and Amazon. Recognizing the importance of the
    content within institutional repositories, this new functionality
    will allow such content to be integrated and linked with the wider
    scientific literature.
