I'm doing a project about using TEI for shared/social text annotation,
for a Rare Book School class taught by David Seaman this summer.
As background research, I'd like to collect as complete a list as
possible of precedents. That is, known examples of where TEI, or
similar markup system, have been used in any of these these ways:
1) to allow annotation of one part of a text to be shared across
other systems, even different types of systems, for the same text.
2) to allow citation linking to reliably reference a specific part of a text.
3) or more basically, just to do fine-grained labeling of a text,
down to sentence or even word level.
Some of my recent reference points, advocating social annotation:
a) "EPubís tall shortcoming: How annotation needs linking and why we
donít have It" by Aaron S. Miller, CTO of BookGlutton.com:
b) Steven Johnson, "How the E-Book Will Change the Way We Read and
Write," WSJ, April 20, 2009.
I appreciate any pointers or guidance anyone can offer on this topic,
and will be happy to share results of this poll or of the research
