Scripto is an alternative to the ProofreadPage extension used
by Wikisource. It is based on Mediawiki but also on OpenLayers,
the software used to zoom and pan in OpenStreetMap.
The only website I have seen that uses Scripto is the U.K.
War Department papers, and in many ways it is more clumsy
than ProofreadPage. But there might be a few ideas that could
be worth picking up. Take a look.
The software is described at http://scripto.org/
As for reference installations, they mention

ATTN: Australians, mostly ;-)
During the week of ALIA at which Sue Gardner keynoted, the Wikimedia
Australia committee consulted with Australian GLAM partners and
formulated a concept to support a significant number of Wikimedians in
Residence across Australia. After a bit of refinement, and having
received a few in-principle agreements from GLAMs, the committee
approved the following proposal on Sunday.
If you will reside in Australia in the 2013-14 financial year, and can
work as a WiR one day a week for six months, please apply here (and/or
tell your friends):
If you think cultural institutions in your region will be interested
and have relevant material in their collection, please ask them to
email committee(a)wikimedia.org.au .
Congrats Charles for seeing this project through to completion, and the
many others involved in.
