    • ORIGINS • “Flickr for EPrints.” Jill Walker, DSUG 2006 (jilltxt.net) • “...institutional repositories can be made more accessible for learning and teaching through the use of Web 2.0 technologies.” Franklin & van Harmelen, 2007 (tinyurl.com/ccwc8u)
    • ORIGINS • “A book which has been annotated can give us a direct insight into the interface between author and reader, can show not only that a text was definitely read and absorbed but also perhaps how it was received.” David Pearson, 2007. (http://eprints.rclis.org/ archive/00012026/)

    • ORIGINS • Who needs Commenting, Bookmarking and Tagging functions within the repository? What about Del.icio.us, Connotea, Zotero, A.nnotate, Diigo, etc.? • Large repositories and meta repositories with substantial user community • Non-textual repositories - images, multimedia • Already specified as a requirement by some IRs • Keeps potentially valuable added information within the Repository management system - rather than giving it away!
