Tagging Survey

A MLS student at SCSU, Kyle Lynes is conducting a survey for his masters thesis.  Here is the aim of the study:  “In an effort to make digital collections more accessible, I am comparing the different tags/keywords assigned to digital images by both professional indexers and end users. These tags often end up acting as access points to the image during a keyword search, ultimately determining whether or not the image is retrieved.

I have created a web-accessible photo survey in which participants answer a few basic demographic questions and then assign tags to twenty different digital images depicting places in the United States from 1900-1925. I have already collected data from professional indexers, and I am now looking for end users to take the survey.”

Please consider doing this survey.  It will take approximately 20 minutes. The survey can be accessed here.
