Description/Abstract

This position paper proposes a taxonomy of perception in Collaborative Information Seeking. Individual searchers can have limited perceptions of their own information needs. In Collaborative Information Seeking, however, individuals must convey this need to other people, who then may have a limited perception of the message. Further, the information need may be shared by a group and perceived differently by each member. This paper draws upon the notions of perception from key related fields and defines three dimensions of perception in Collaborative Information Seeking: Direction, Communication, and Subject.
