I need a word that fits this case:
I have a book; and any User may apply some tags to it, like 'dark' or 'happy' [..]
Anyway, how would I call this action, using a short term?


On the internet, it's usually called "tagging".


Are you looking for categorize?

transitive verb

to place into a category : classify

  • +1 Very precise, but i shall take @Chisti's for context – Fabiano Soriani Jun 2 '11 at 14:36

    Haha, until I saw your response I nearly edited the OP's title to change 'category' to 'categorize' :) – Robusto Jun 2 '11 at 14:46
