IDAH Manager of Systems Development, Will Cowan attends OAC Workshop March 2011

IDAH Manager of Systems Development, Will Cowan attended the Open Annotation Collaboration Phase II Workshop, March 24-25, 2011. The workshop brought together scholars, librarians and system designers involved in ongoing content-rich projects using or planning to implement annotation tools and services.  Participants were given an in-depth introduction to the Open Annotation Collaboration (OAC) data model and ontology for describing scholarly annotations of Web-accessible information resources. This data model supports annotation interoperability and sharing across diverse clients, tools, and repositories. Using illustrative use cases contributed by workshop participants and members of the OAC, attendees were given an opportunity to learn about and work with the latest version of the OAC data model and ontology. Use cases involving a range of scholarly annotation classes and target media types were presented. Participants were asked to examine, comment on, and provide feedback on how the OAC data model and framework intersects (or fails to intersect) with domain-specific needs for annotation services and with existing discipline or repository-specific annotation tools and services. By the end of the day and a half workshop, attendees were better prepared to propose and undertake implementations of annotation tools and services exploiting the OAC data model and ontology
