Thing #8 and counting

I played with the Endeca catalogs at NCSU, McMaster, and FSU. I've previously looked at Library Thing for Libraries, the AADL cloud tag, and the Librarian's Internet Index.

What I would find the most useful would be, in priority order:

Relevance ranking of results as the default, with the ability to sort by author, title, or date.

Faceted browsing

The ability to tag records quickly and easily, and to see only my tags if I choose

The first two are really a tie, rather than one and two rankings. Tagging is definitely lower priority than either, at least for me.
