Tags Now Browseable

February 16, 2012

A recent new feature to the Video Library exposes our tag structure. We tag every program with a keyword which is part of a hierarchical system. You can now use that structure to find programs of interest. Say you are interested in History. You can browse the policy History and Society and then see a subcategory of History. From that you can see the tags for different periods of History such as Cold War or the Civil War. We think that this will help people find programs by topic in our vast collection.

Find this new feature under Browse and then Tags on the left side. The page will look like this.
