III. How to Tag Resources

 

All uploaded resources need to be tagged. Tags are keywords that describe the content of each resource.  Tags catalog the information that is provided in each documents and groups related content together. Tagging makes it easier for users to find what they're looking for.

 

  • How to add tags:
  1. Before you create new tags, please refer to the current list of tags: http://rmcresources.pbworks.com/w/tagsFor consistency, please use existing tags first. For example, the tag "woman-centered" already exists. If you tagged your document "women-centered" instead, then a search for woman-centered care wouldn't capture your document. If you don't see an existing tag that describes your document, then create a new one. 
  2.  Click on the "Add Tags" button (top right corner of website). Enter your tags and  separate each tag with a comma, then click "ok."

 

 

  • Suggestions for tags:
    • Focus on content. A tag should describe the topics included in your document.
    • Add more than one tag.  Try to use as many relevant tags as you can. More tags will better summarize your document and will make it more  searchable. However,  if a tag is not directly relevant to the document, don't include it. There's no need to be overly specific and include everything.
    • Create short tags An individual tag should be only one or two words. Longer tags can confuse a search. Think of a one sentence description for your resource, and break down that sentence or idea into its basic components.
