Title: Collaborative Information Retrieval
Author(s): Twidale, Michael B.; Nichols, David M.
Subject(s): collaboration, social navigation, collaborative filtering, recommender systems, computer supported cooperative work
Abstract: Collaborative information retrieval (CIR) encompasses the many varied social approaches to information seeking. Although some information retrieval systems have given an impression of individual access to resources, there is a growing realization that much information work is fundamentally collaborative in nature. We highlight key points in the recent history of CIR, particularly the difference between explicit and implicit collaboration.
