Hi guys, it's my first time posting here so sorry if I repeat a question that's already been asked.
I was wondering if LibraryThing holds a hierarchy of the used tags (where tags are structured as an ontology - a tree). If not, are they planning to add something like that?
del.icio.us has something along these lines but I'm mainly interested in book tags.

Anyonw knows anything?

Cheers
Sharon.

I believe the answers are 'No' and 'No' as far as LibraryThing is concerned. I suggest that you read Tim's blog entries on tags to get the background (I think mostly on the Thingology blog).

That said, I recall that someone did construct a tree version of some of the tags a few months back. A Google search of the Groups here might find it.

ok, thanks. I will try to search for the tree version.
