Abstract:


In this paper we present DiLAS, a dedicated service for the management of annotations, supporting complex collaborative applications in distributed environments. The mission of DiLAS is to foster change in users' interaction with digital libaries (DL) and contribute to developing services for social infrastructures in DLs. We thus introduce a new independent annotation service for interactive knowledge creation and sharing, ready to be plugged into existing DL systems. As a show case, we discuss the integration of the DiLAS annotation service into DAFFODIL, an existing digital library management framework. As a future show case, the service is going to be integrated into the BRICKS infrastructure.
