"Bodleian Library Partners with Read and Note to Enhance its Digital Collection"

Note: The product discussed below is described as a “notation realization system.”

Via Paul Biba at TeleRead:

The Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford announced today that it has entered into a final agreement with Read and Note to enhance access to the Libraries’ exceptional digital collection; in particular materials derived from the Oxford–Google digitization project and other e-book publications. The initiative will transform the ability to access digitized books and other forms of content. The partnership will create a new kind of reading experience for ebooks allowing users to read, annotate, extract and share comments across online, mobile, and tablet, platforms. The Read and Note system allows reading research and e-published text to be brought forth, tagged, and annotated with comment, interpretation, and illustration.
