Scholarly Tagging Projects and Initiatives?

Colleagues/

I am greatly interested in Any and All current or planned initiatives  
that involve the Folksonomic Tagging of **Scholarly** articles,  
preprints, manuscripts, documents, or Other Publications by **Readers**.

As defined by Wikipedia,

"Folksonomy is a neologism for a practice of collaborative  
categorization using freely chosen keywords. More colloquially, this  
refers to a group of people cooperating spontaneously to organize  
information into categories, typically using categories or tags on  
pages, or semantic links with types that evolve without much central  
control."

[ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folksonomy ]

The inspiration for my query is the ColLib project [ http:// 
collib.info/ ] - "the collaborative platform for organizing Open  
Access materials in Library & Information Science (LIS)" developed by  
Magnus Enger. As noted, "colLib harvests metadata-records from OAI- 
PMH-compliant repositories and enables manual 'tagging' of these  
records to cluster them by subject or other meaningful categories.  
Tags are represented by pages in a wiki, that can be annotated with  
links to related tags, external links and any other text deemed  
relevant." [WOW: A WIKI! ]:-)

And Yes, I am aware of  Connotea
[ http://www.connotea.org  ] [http://www.connotea.org/about  ]

BTW: I highly recommend a Most Interesting Article

"Social Terminology Enhancement through Vernacular Engagement  
Exploring Collaborative Annotation to Encourage Interaction with  
Museum Collections" by David Bearman and Jennifer Trant from the  
September 2005 issue of _D-Lib  Magazine_
