In the semi-automatic indexing (including computer-assisted / computer aided or semi automatic indexing ) are in the indexing of documents with the aid of automatic process descriptors proposed and selected manually. The proposed descriptors can originate, for example, from a controlled vocabulary or the metadata of the document or have been extracted from the document to be described with the aid of computer linguistics methods . With social tagging , descriptors are often suggested to the user that have already been used for the same document or by the same user. This feedback increases indexing consistency and promotes the formation of a folksonomy .
