Publication Abstract

The W3C Open Annotation Community Group has published an RDF-based data model and ontology for describing annotations of digital resources. This model is designed to facilitate the implementation of interoperable annotation services and tools supporting research and scholarship in the humanities and sciences and to allow researchers to annotate information objects across multiple repositories. At the core of the specification is the idea that annotations are themselves first class Web resources that can be referenced and annotated.
