Collaborative Information Gathering
Antonietta Grasso, Uwe Borghoff, Nathalie Glance, Jutta Willamowski
The combination of push and pull information retrieval technology can benefit from collaborative information
gathering schemes. In this paper we outline an approach that combines a pull technology (Knowledge Brokers)
with a push technology (Knowledge Pump) in a community-based environment. Appropriate toolkits supporting
synchronous collaboration on the World Wide Web are briefly introduced. A PlaceWare-based implementation
illustrates the synchronous construction of queries and the publication of search activities and results
supported by the push component.
