interest to this community:

*Collaborative Information Seeking*
/Best Practices, New Domains and New Thoughts/
Editors: Preben *Hansen*, Chirag *Shah*, Claus-Peter *Klas*
[Published under Springer CSCW Series]

  * Provides a fresh look on collaborative information seeking and
    retrieval research and practices
  * Combines aspects of theories and systems relating to collaborative
  * Discusses best practices and applications of collaborative work in
    information-intensive domains
  * Provides a selection of in-depth chapter to be used in curriculum in
    different disciplines

Compiled by world-class leaders in the field of collaborative 
information retrieval and search (CIS), this book centres on the notion 
that information seeking is not always a solitary activity and working 
in collaboration to perform information-seeking tasks should be studied 
and supported.

Covering aspects of theories, models, and applications the book is 
divided in three parts:

  * Best Practices and Studies: providing an overview of current
    knowledge and state-of-the-art in the field.
  * New Domains: covers some of the new and exciting opportunities of
    applying CIS
  * New Thoughts: focuses on new research directions by scholars from
    academia and industry from around the world.

/Collaborative Information Seeking/ provides a valuable reference for 
student, teachers, and researchers interested in the area of 
collaborative work, information seeking/retrieval, and human-computer
