Annotating Bibliographic Information

At the recent call I promised to elaborate on the use cases I had suggested, including cover art, and to try to explain why I think that cover art really is an annotation use case.   In order to do that I need to provide background on some of the thinking within the library/bibliographic community about annotations (specifically the thinking with the BIBFRAME project,  So I have prepared a (roughly) two-and-a-half page discussion paper that tries to provide background, in "layman" terms (i.e. for those not familiar with library/bibliographic terminology).  The paper is attached and I hope you will take the time to read it and to comment.

(Note: I am not sure if this is the proper way to contribute a paper; if not, let me know how.)
