    1. Essentially, we will make it worth your while, trust us. We've got the people and have done it before ( hmm..not in this way you have not).

    1. Fundamental questions for the library revolve around issues of: stewardship (what types of annotations are appropriate for library ownership, vs. say a course platform), persistence (how long should different types of annotations be persisted and preserved), costs (who will fund annotation storage over time) access (what privacy and distribution controls need to be placed on access to annotations.)
