Empowering Digital Libraries Users through Combining Taxonomies with Folksonomies

add values and enhance a digital library user's ability to
find, access, use, and re-use available digital objects.
Considering the emerging applications, combining the
strengths of the two approaches indeed offer powerful data
organization, combination, and query capabilities. In the

and emerging trends in indexing resources in digital
libraries. We will also explore the potentials of and
controversies surrounding folksonomies.
