  23. 23. ESE  Ontology  •  Agents  can  be  individuals,  organisa=ons,  or  groups  par=cipa=ng  in  an  Event.  •  Events  can  specify  a  point  or  dura=on  of  =me  in  which  an  Agent  or  Agents  work  together  to  produce  an  Artefact.  Events  have  four  main  types:  composi=on  for  the  produc=on  of  manuscript  material;  edi=on  for  the  produc=on  of  books;  serialisa=on  for  the  produc=on  of  periodical  publica=on;  and  recep=on  for  the  produc=on  of  an  Artefact  as  a  wriZen  response  to  a  Work.  •  Artefacts  are  the  material  objects  (e.g.  manuscripts,  magazines,  and  books)  that  readers  use  to  engage  with  a  Work.  Versions  are  embodied  in  an  Artefact.  An  Artefact,  such  as  a  revised  typescript,  can  embody  one  or  more  Versions.  An  Artefact  can  also  provide  access  to  more  than  one  Work.  •  DigitalResources  are  images  or  transcrip=ons  that  act  as  digital  surrogates  for  Artefacts.  •  Versions  are  embodied  in  an  Artefact  and  realise  a  Work,  ac=ng  as  a  conceptual  link  between  material  and  abstract  en==es.    •  Works  are  conceptual  constructs  that  enable  Artefacts  and  Versions  to  be  organised  and  related  under  a  common  parent.

  27. 27. Challenges  •  Annotate  selec=ons  regardless  of  rendered  format/view  –  E.g.  HTML  rendered  directly  from  TEI  vs  as  rendered  via  colla=on  tool,  Images  viewed  directly  vs  images  displayed  through  lightbox  tool  •  Allow  annota=on  while  text  is  s=ll  being  edited/corrected  –  E.g.  use  TextQuoteSelector  and  “Fuzzy”  matching  •  Query  and  display  annota=ons  of  text  selec=ons,  textual  varia=on  across  versions  –  When  large  sec=ons  text  might  have  been  transposed
