Alireza Noruzi Department of Information Science, University of Paul Cezanne, Marseille, France Received November 5, 2004; Accepted December 3, 2004 Abstract This paper analyzes the Web and raises a significant question: "Does the Web save the time of the users?

Application of Ranganathan's Laws to the Web: the Five Laws of the Web

" This question is analyzed in the context of Five Laws of the Web. What do these laws mean? Keywords World Wide Web, Ranganathan's laws, Five Laws of Library Science Introduction The World Wide Web is an Internet system that distributes graphical, hyperlinked information, based on the hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP). We live in exciting times. The Web is interested in its cybercitizens (users) using its resources for all sorts of reasons: education, creative recreation, social justice, democratic freedoms, improvement of the economy and business, support for literacy, life long learning, cultural enrichment, etc.

The Five Laws of Library Science Books are for use. In 1992, James R. Gorman's laws are the most famous. 1. 2. 3. Ranganathan Killed the Library Theorist. I have been thinking a lot about the philosophical underpinnings of librarianship lately and recently reread Andre Cossette’s essay: Humanism and Libraries: An Essay on the Philosophy of Librarianship, (1976) which was recently translated from French by Rory Litwin, and is available from Litwin’s Library Juice Press.

Ranganathan Killed the Library Theorist

This essay illustrates the lack of philosophical and theoretical thinking in librarianship that has been troubling me as of late, and lays out a “philosophy of librarianship” grounded in the humanist/realist schools of thought that I feel could bring about a renaissance to our profession and pull us out of the malaise that we are currently mired in professionally. I’ll write more about this in a later post, but I want to focus for a moment on why we are currently in this state in the profession.

There is no doubt that S. R. Folksonomy tagging: "crowdsourcing" metadata for Library 2.0? Folksonomies et communautés de partage de signets. Tag Literacy. Introduction: Part of the allure of classifying things by assigning tags to them is that the user can give free reign to sloppiness.

Tag Literacy

There is no authority —human or computational— passing judgment on the appropriateness or validity of tags, because tags have to make sense first and foremost to the individual who assigns and uses them. And yet, the whole point of distributed classification systems (DCSs) such as and flickr is that the aggregation of inherently private goods (tags and what they describe) has public value: When people use the same tag to point to different resources they are organizing knowledge in a manner, commonly referred to as a folksonomy, that makes sense to them and to others like them.

We can say, then, that DCSs function at the intersection of individual choices and the shared linguistic/semantic norms of a social group (the folks in folksonomy). In this paper, I explore two aspects of this intersection. Homme ou machine ? Qu’est-ce que la cultu. L’opposition homme-machine est un leurre.

Homme ou machine ? Qu’est-ce que la cultu

Il s’agit plus d’ailleurs d’une association même si elle peut être parfois néfaste, c’est-à-dire relevant davantage d’une dissociation voire d’une prolétarisation qui se manifeste au moins par une perte de savoirs et de savoir-faire. Je reviens ici sur ces aspects en utilisant quelques passages de mon travail de recherche doctoral. La technique est part constitutive de la culture ce que plusieurs chercheurs dans diverses disciplines ont déjà entrepris de démontrer. Bernard Stiegler rappelle ainsi le caractère éminemment technique de la culture et son rôle prépondérant dans la constitution de la mémoire : Folksonomies. Le terme de folksonomie est apparu récemment sur le web pour désigner le phénomène d’indexation des documents numériques par l’usager.


On rencontre également fréquemment le mot tag qui désigne en quelque sorte un mot-clé. Le terme de folknologie est aussi employé, mais plus rarement. L’usage du mot folksonomie semble donc plus opportun. Culture documentaire et folksonomies.

Culture documentaire et folksonomies. L’indexation à l’ère industrielle et collaborative. Des folksonomies aux hashtags, quelles cultures informationnelles ? A L’INDEX. Outils 2.0. Hashtags. Hashtags Introduction Hashtags are a community-driven convention for adding additional context and metadata to your tweets.


They're like tags on Flickr, only added inline to your post. You create a hashtag simply by prefixing a word with a hash symbol: #hashtag. Hashtags were developed as a means to create "groupings" on Twitter, without having to change the basic service. The hash symbol is a convention borrowed primarily from IRC channels, and later from Jaiku's channels. provides real-time tracking of Twitter hashtags. How To Use Hashtags Start using hashtags in your tweets, preceding key words. Finally, track other tweets on the subjects you're interested in (ie: those containing the appropriate hashtags) by browsing/searching at, TwitterGroups, TweetChat, TweetGrid, Twitterfall, etc.
