Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Text annotation is the practice and the result of adding a note to a text, which may include highlights or underlining, comments, footnotes, tags, and links. Text annotations can include notes written for a reader's private purposes, as well as shared annotations written for the purposes of collaborative writing and editing, commentary, or social reading and sharing. In some fields, text annotation is comparable to metadata insofar as it is added post hoc and provides information about a text without fundamentally altering that original text. Text annotations are sometimes referred to as Marginalia, though some reserve this term specifically for hand-written notes made in the margins of books or manuscripts. This article covers both private and socially shared text annotations, including hand-written and information technology-based annotation, as well as Web-based text annotation.
