Hi all,

I hope that this announcement will be of some interest those on the
list; the Open Annotation Community Group
( will be hosting a
half-day tutorial describing their new Annotation Data Model
( at JCDL 2013


Using Open Annotation

The practice of annotating documents and resources is a time-honored
tradition across all scholarly domains and in the day-to-day lives of
academicians and non-academicians alike. The W3C Open Annotation (OA)
Community Group was formed in late 2011, joining the efforts of the
Open Annotation Collaboration and the Annotation Ontology initiative.
The Community Group has recently released a developer-ready, RDF-based
annotation data model specification to foster the development of
interoperable annotation tools and service and to facilitate the
sharing of annotations across repository and Web application

This tutorial introduces digital library, humanities and science
computing, and semantic web developers, project managers, and
experimenters to:

The essential components of the OA data model and specification,
Working exemplars of how the OA data model has been applied to various
annotation use cases
Helpful links, resources, guides and libraries for implementing the OA
data model.

The tutorial will be led by Open Annotation Collaboration project
members: Tim Cole, Tom Habing, Rob Sanderson & Jacob Jett

If of interest, please take a moment to register for the tutorial on
the JCDL 2013 website.
