Search Strategies for Finding Annotations and Annotated Documents: The FAST Service
This paper discusses two kinds of search strategies supported by the Flexible Annotation Service Tool (FAST), an annotation service that can be used by different Digital Library Management Systems (DLMSs). The first strategy concerns the search and retrieval of annotations, considered as stand-alone documents; while, the second one regards how to exploit annotations in order to search and retrieve annotated documents which are relevant for a user query. This paper describes the proposed search strategies in the light of the architectural design choices needed to support them.
