Resource organization, curation, and collaboration are key to the roles of many library and information science professionals. One new way to enrich data (textual or otherwise) that are spread across many websites and repositories is through annotation. In February 2017, the W3C standards body for the world wide web approved annotation as a web standard, paving the way for open interoperable annotation to be built natively into browsers. Now users can utilize a free tool like Hypothesis to make private notes, use for a collaborative group project, or share public annotations on any material that can be viewed in a browser in formats that include html, PDF, EPUB, CSV, video transcripts on YouTube, and more. Using open source technology, annotations each have a unique persistent web address, enabling them to augment or connect data in new ways. Join our lively and practical session to learn how to curate web resources, update learning materials (including LibGuides), explore annotation as a scholarly practice, or streamline business functions (invoices and documents) using collaborative open annotation.

Attendees will hear use cases about how annotation is being used in the library, researcher, education, and publishing spaces, and will have the opportunity to share their own stories. There will be a focus on communication and education about annotation to different stakeholders.
