Providing historical and cultural information that adapts to personal content and presentation preferences is increasingly important to museums. There is a need for personalization not only for accessibility but also to provide the user with relevant information-rich content. This paper describes how annotations can be used to support an interpretive process. Scenarios demonstrate how annotation technologies can enable different Museum user groups to add interpretive and academic content to Quinkan Country rock art records. Further, we extend the AccessForAll specification to allow Museum users to set display, control and content preferences for annotations.
