Abstract:
Using ethnographic studies, we show how paper is integral to collaborative work in three very different
organisational settings. Reasons for the use of paper as opposed to electronic alternatives are analysed in
terms of the local aspects of interaction it supports, and also the ways in which use of paper has evolved
hand-in-hand with organisational work practise. The implications of these findings for the design of collaborative
tools are discussed.
