Abstract

The curation of historic documents is a difficult task as it requires to combine information and raw material from many different sources. Digital tools can support such a sensemaking task and group collaboration can help the discovery of knowledge. While most of people’s personal devices (such as phones, tablets and laptops) are connected to the internet, they are not aware of each other’s presence or relationship when in close proximity. Leveraging people’s personal devices and other devices in their surroundings provides an opportunity to support the curation of historic documents in ad hoc small group scenarios. I describe my motivation and a selection of related work, leading to requirements for such a system. I then state how I am planning to address these challenges and my current state of research, following two parallel tracks: building and testing technology as well as conducting observational studies and interviews to inform my designs.
