  1. 1. Striking a balance : Managing collaborative multitasking in computer-supported cooperation

    Author : Rikard Harr; Victor Kaptelinin; Mikael Wiberg; Oskar Juhlin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Computer-supported Cooperative Work; articulation work; individual task execution; balance; interruptions; availability; awareness; interaction; information technology; multitasking; task switching; Informatics; computer and systems science; Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis is a collection of six papers and a cover paper reporting an exploration of how to strike a balance between individual task execution and work articulation in Computer-supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). The interest in this theme is motivated by an increased reliance of IT-supported cooperative work arrangements in modern organizations, the fragmented layout of work for multitasking individuals and reports on various forms of overload, increased level of stress and anxiety experienced by workers active in these organizations.

    Abstract : This thesis reports a research effort that comprises six papers and a cover paper. In essence, the thesis contributes to the understanding of collaborative settings by introducing the perspective of 'places of collaboration‘. This perspective is particularly important when designing computer-based technologies that support collaborative settings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Facilitating collaboration : exploring a socio-technical approach to the design of a collaboratory for Library and Information Science

    Author : Monica Lassi; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; scientific collaboration; collaboratories; information sharing; socio-technical design; think aloud methods; prototyping; interaction design; computer supported cooperative work; CSCW; social actors; Library and Information Science; LIS; Library and Information Science; Biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The thesis explores the potential of one way of facilitating and stimulating collaboration in Library and Information Science (LIS), through a specific scientific collaboration activity: creating, sharing and reusing data collection instruments, such as interview guides, questionnaires, and observation protocols. The four studies reported in the thesis can be read as a linear narrative, each study building on the previous and contributing to the following ones. READ MORE
