There are many questions asking for lecture notes on some topic. And about a week ago also the tag has been created. The question is to which extent this tag can be useful and whether it should be kept or removed. (In any case, since the new tag can affect many question, I think it is good to discuss it on meta before taking any further actions.)

    $\begingroup$ I don't think that we really need a lecture notes tag. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 10 '17 at 9:05

    $\begingroup$ I think if we have a tag for books it isn't unreasonable to have a tag for lecture notes. But I don't think the two tags should generally be used together. If someone is looking for a reference that could be a book or lecture notes, then just use the reference-request tag. I think the book-recommendation tag should only be used if the references are required to be books. $\endgroup$ – Trevor Gunn Jul 10 '17 at 22:56

    $\begingroup$ If we are going to get rid of the tag, do we want it merged into (reference-request) or into (online-resources)? $\endgroup$ – Trevor Gunn Jul 11 '17 at 1:18

    $\begingroup$ @T.Gunn I guess if the number of the question stays low before decision in some direction is taken, then manual retagging is feasible (rather then merging two tags by a moderator). Personally, I think that question suitable for (lecture-notes) tag should have both (reference-request) and (online-resources) tag, if this tags is going to be removed. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jul 14 '17 at 14:14
