SHASS: A New Electronic Annotation Support System, Towards an Effective Knowledge Sharing in Digital Library

AAAI Conferences 

Most of the research in the digital library domain has addressed indexing and recovering digital resources. However, more work is still needed to find effective ways to support users when they actually use (read) digital libraries' documents and to enhance reading experience by sharing digital annotations. In this paper, we present a new system, named SHASS (for SHarable Annotation Support System), providing advanced assistance for making and exploiting annotations in digital libraries.
