Research in Early Careers Development

This grant will fund an Early Career Development research project, in which Rutgers University Assistant Professor Chirag Shah will investigate the need to introduce and support collaborative information seeking for people working in information intensive domains like libraries. The intended audience of this project includes, but is not limited to, students, educators, researchers, developers, and practitioners. While much has been made of the collaborative nature of information systems’ content creation (wikis, blogs, etc.), the seeking and retrieval of information can also be enhanced through collaboration, one scenario of which might include networked expert reference.
