Abstract

The web is increasingly used as an information source to gain new knowledge but the management of found web pages can be a challenging task. Often social tagging systems are used for resource management. Besides the obvious use of tags – organizing a collection of web resources – they support functionalities like sharing resources with other users and recommendation of further possibly relevant web pages. This paper describes a novel application based on an extended tagging concept that can improve resource management and recommendation. Adding semantic information to tags and tagging fragments of web pages instead of whole web pages enhance the possibilities of well-known tagging applications. Individual knowledge networks are the basis of this tagging concept. A first prototype is developed as proof of concept.
