Title: The Future of Annotation in a Digital (Paper) World
Author(s): Marshall, C.
Subject(s): Annotation Bush, Vannevar
Abstract: If order-making in the large is part of the institutional mission of libraries, then order-making in the small—i.e., the informal work of annotating and organizing materials collected in the service of particular dayto- day work or pleasure—is part of the business of library patrons. This discussion focuses on just such activities; activities that stem from readers' engagements with texts, and possibly with each other, against a backdrop of real-world settings and practices. I hesitate to call digital library patrons users, since that is the word computer scientists tend to use to hide the characteristics of what we hope is a diverse population.
