As an exemplary implementation of a recommender system for social tagging systems we present in this chapter the tag recommendation framework of BibSonomy. It allows to test, evaluate and compare different tag recommendation algorithms in an online setting, where the users of BibSonomy actually see the recommendations during the posting process. The chapter is based on work published in [10, 11].
