Today we have a new update for you. We are in the process of standardising our own tagging system for the History SPOT podcasts to allow us to create an index for you to find podcasts on your own subject more easily. As we work on this, we have, in the meantime, moved all of the metadata tags into the ‘user tags’ option. This means that all tags related to a podcast can be looked at from any page on the podcast section of History SPOT (just look at the left hand menu). In addition by registering and signing in you can add your own additional tags to a podcast. So if there is something that we have missed, or tags have not yet been added, then you can contribute and therefore increase the discovery of that podcast for other researchers.
When logged in all you need to do is click on the tab at the top of the page upon which the podcast is contained (as shown in the image below), and select the ‘Tags’ option.
This will take you to the tags page for this particular podcast. Add your tag(s) and click on the Add button. You may add as many as you wish using a coma to separate the items.
Tag clouds are a useful way to see at a glance the type of content within the History SPOT podcasts and how many items might contain that topic (the tag appears larger the more often it occurs).
