Is it possible to be able to tag / mark items as 'Electronic Resource' for online journal articles and e-books etc and then be able to re-group the list to display all electronic resources together?
Tagging is something we plan to address and it is in backlog. However, it is not yet scoped or prioritised but we will update this idea as we progress.
Desperate need to use tags which are searchable - as in spirit of OER. We need to make this excellent facility match other normal search patterns for students.
We'd like something similar...to be able to Tag items and to then enable students to search those tags within a list.

Presuming this refers to tagging bookmarks in My Bookmarks, we would also support this assuming that each user could assign their own tags (like in Delicious) as librarians might want to use resource type or school, but academics might want to use subjects or module breakdowns or a personal flag.
I've re-titled this issue as "Tag items" (was Tag Items as 'Electronic Resource') as tagging could be used for a number of purposes including marking things as electronic resources.

I'd like a separate tag for 'e-books' to distinguish them from print copies. We have seperate entries on our library catalogue for e-books and print books of the same title so they woud need to be bookmarked separately - so it would be useful to tag print as 'book' and electronic as 'e-book'. Otherwise it may appear to students that a title appears twice on their list - unless information was included in the notes field they wouldn't know that one was print and the other electronic until they clicked on the title.

I certainly think it would be useful to be able to edit items once you have bookmarked them. We are having trouble with adding items from Swetswise, our main journals agent, and often it is only once you have accepted a bookmark that you see you have
missed vital info or kept in something you don't want.
