I'm really quite taken by the SNEEP plug-in for ePrints that was showcased at OR08. It enables users to add their comments/annotations to an item stored in an eprints repository. These annotations are then made public and items can have numerous annotations added by different users. I don't know if there's a limit...? This is a great example of one way that value can be added to data collections in the context of digital curation - though admittedly the value of the added comments and annotations will be debatable! SNEEP can be downloaded from the SNEEP eprints installation at ULCC.
