LTFL Library Tag Clouds

LibraryThing for Libraries has added a new feature to our Tag Browser, showing tag clouds for an entire library. Available in different “resolutions” (up to 1,000 tags), they give a nice overview of “what’s out there” in a library’s collection, and provide quick entry points to the lists for each tag.

Update: Here’s an example at the Spokane County Library System

LTFL libraries can turn the feature on and off in the Tag Configuration page. Libraries can jump right to the tag cloud with a link like:

<a href="#" onclick="LibraryThingConnector.widgets.tags.showTagCloud(); return false;">asd</a>

    I love the idea of seeing a tag cloud based off our entire collection. I’ll have to play around with this next Sunday morning 🙂
