    Information Aggregators for Online Researchers

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    One way of looking at online research is as a project that starts with searches and ends with summaries.The online researcher searches for information to meet the needs of their client and produces a summary report for the client. Information aggregators help in the production and display of summary views and are therefore a natural tool for the online researcher. What kinds of information aggregator features would be most helpful for online researchers?

    First, it would be useful to have help in collecting the information for the research project. Tools to capture links and selections from Web pages and to add notes would be useful. This information needs to be organized into a structure. Information aggregators can do this by providing a personal knowledge base or Web directory. The project is added as a new category in the knowledge base and the information collected can be organized into categories within the project. It would be useful to have a browser extension to help capture this information while browsing.

    For example, the researcher does a search and is going through the results. Some of the links prove useful and can be captured into the knowledge base. On some pages, a particular selection from the page proves useful. This also can be captured. This captured information can be annotated and organized into categories. As the project progresses more information is captured, annotated and categorized. It would also be useful to be able to enter text and tabular information directly into the project within the same knowledge entries in the knowledge base. This is all part of the process of building up a summary view from the vast amount of information on the Web.

    Of course, an online researcher may do similar projects for different clients, so it would be useful for them to be able to build up their own knowledge base of commonly used resources over time.
