Video: Peter Brantley on Annotating the World’s Knowledge, a project briefing from CNI’s spring 2013 member meeting by Peter Brantley, is now available on CNI’s video channels:


Vimeo:, a not-for-profit start-up, is building a reference implementation for open annotation that will be a distributed, open-source platform for the collaborative evaluation of information based on a new draft standard for annotating digital documents. It is currently being developed by the Open Annotation Collaboration, a consortium that includes the Internet Archive, NISO (National Information Standards Organization), O’Reilly Books, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and a number of academic institutions. This presentation includes discussion of the system under development, as well as a demonstration of some of its new tools, presented by scholarly communications director Peter Brantley.
