Anno Advanced 2
From Digital Publishing Interest Group
Cross Version Annotations
- Use case
- A user wishes to annotate part of a publication for which she has multiple editions, or that is updated regularly, and have those annotations persist between versions of the same publication. For example, annotating the first line of Hamlet should appear on all of the copies of the play that the user has access to. If the publisher provides a typo-fix, known to happen silently at times, then the annotations should be available on this new version of the publication rather than equally silently disappearing. Thirdly, a teacher annotating a text book should be able to share his annotations with his students even though they do not have the teacher's copy of the text book, but instead have acquired it from different retailers.
- * Global Identity of the intellectual Work of the publication, rather than a particular Instance of it.
