This paper investigates quality assurance mechanisms of social tagging of open educational resources in the contexts of formal and informal learning in science centers and museums. Based on the extensive literature review we derived twenty most important quality attributes of social tags. Those attributes were ranked according to their importance from the viewpoint of informal and formal learners of museums and science centers. The applicability and usefulness of the obtained quality attributes is demonstrated based on the example of a repository of open science resources.
