A tag is a word or phrase associated with one or more catalogue records. It is used to link together related catalogue records in a way meaningful to Arena users. For example, classic novels may be linked together by associating them with the 'classics' tag.

Tag Clouds

A Tag Cloud is a panel which displays frequently used tags added by Arena users. The most frequently used tags are shown in a larger font. By clicking on a tag in the cloud, Arena will find all catalogue records which are associated with that tag.
