Abstract de la publi numéro 9099

Information nowadays is a capital for any organization intending to be reactive and aware of its environment. Unfortunately most modern organizations overdose on information as almost every member daily accesses, extracts and stores a growing amount of documents, i.e. vehicles for information. This situation is even deteriorating as individual efforts to organize and search for information yield poorly from the organization standpoint since diffusion mechanisms are limited. We propose a personal and collective information management architecture in order to take advantage of individual efforts, and to manage documents in a collective and sustainable way. This is based on the integration of the document lifecycle activities depicting the way people manage information and documents. The proposed architecture exploits individual efforts through interdependent processes designed on a mutual benefit scheme. These processes rely on the annotation practice, considered as a representative evidence of the way individuals interact with information.
