In this paper we discuss how aspects of the Social Semantic Web can be used in an eScience context to deliver tools to researchers in the social sciences. We explain how user requirements led us to develop a hybrid solution involving use of ontologies and folksonomies in order to document the provenance of research resources, and to situate these within their wider (social) context. A natural language interface able to create, query and browse these descriptions is also briefly described.
