      ABSTRACT Readers annotate paper books as a routine part of their engagement with the materials; it is a useful practice,manifested through a wide variety of markings made inservice of very different purposes. This paper examines the practice of annotation in a particular situation: the markingsstudents make in university-level textbooks. The study focuses on the form and function of these annotations, and their status within a community of fellow textbook readers.Using this study as a basis, I discuss issues and implications for the design of annotation tools for a digital library setting.
