Multiple Labels (again)

People say that meta data and key-words can take the place of labeling. However. If you are visual, like me, your eyes just slide over text. I need to Label Character, Location, and era 1958-1968 for example. Three labels would help me spot that in a second. I have to resort to some other program to SHOW me if Character X appears in New York in 1958. And then shows me that character X REAPPEARS in Los Angeles in 1960.
