We’ve written an article on our experiences developing eMargin, which is featured in the latest issue of Ariadne: the web magazine for information professionals. The article describes the background to the eMargin project, the features of the tool, and its recent integration with virtual learning environments. It also reports on some of the ways in which other researchers are using eMargin.

We’ve improved our search system to allow you to search for annotations in full texts and groups.
eMargin splits long texts into sections. Now you’ll find an extra option in the search pop-out to specify whether to search the section you are working on or the whole text (at the bottom of the screenshot below).
On a group’s page, you’ll find a Search option in the left-hand menu.
In both cases, you can search for highlighted text, comments, colours, tags, who has contributed to the annotation and when contributions were made.
