Collaborative information seeking: The combined activity of information seeking and collaborative grounding

Morten Hertzum
2008 Information Processing & Management  
Since common ground is pivotal to collaboration, this paper proposes to define collaborative information seeking as the combined activity of information seeking and collaborative grounding.  ...  While information-seeking activities are necessary for collaborating actors to acquire new information, the activities involved in information seeking are often performed by varying subgroups of actors  ...  As defined in this paper, collaborative information seeking is the combined activity of information seeking and collaborative grounding.  ...

Toward Collaborative Information Seeking (CIS) [article]

Chirag Shah
2009 arXiv   pre-print
A model of a Collaborative Information Seeking (CIS) environment is then rendered based on an extended model of information seeking.  ...  It is natural for humans to collaborate while dealing with complex problems. In this article I consider this process of collaboration in the context of information seeking.  ...  In the literature, 'collaboration' is also used when certain information such as queries and results are combined algorithmically [11] .  ...

Collaborative information seeking and expertise seeking: different discourses about similar issues

Morten Hertzum
2017 Journal of Documentation  
Originality/value -By analyzing CIS in the context of EXS, and vice versa, this study provides a fresh look at the information-seeking research that attends to collaboration.  ...  Purpose -This study compares and contrasts research on collaborative information seeking (CIS) and expertise seeking (EXS) to identify focal themes, blind spots, and possibilities for cross-fertilization  ...  with the collaborative-grounding activities involved in making this information part of the actors' shared understanding of their work".  ...

Collaborative epistemic discourse in classroom information-seeking tasks

Evaluating the synergic effect of collaboration in information seeking

Chirag Shah, Roberto González-Ibáñez
2011 Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information - SIGIR '11  
Each of these individuals or pairs was given the same task of information seeking and usage for the same amount of time.  ...  We then combined the outputs of single independent users to form artificial pairs, and compared against the real pairs.  ...  Unlike the study of information seeking performed by single users, little is known about how users seek information in collaboration with others.  ...

2010 Information Processing & Management  
The framework was built upon two models of solitary information seeking, and so as part of the re-assessment we first re-frame the models for collaborative contexts.  ...  Despite the many implicit references to the social contexts of search within Information Seeking and Retrieval research, there has been relatively little work that has specifically investigated the additional  ...  Introduction Although the majority of Information Retrieval (IR) and Information Seeking (IS) systems have been designed for solitary use, recent research has shown that we collaborate on search activities  ...
