Active Notebook: A Personal and Group Productivity Tool for Managing Information

Mark C. Torrance

This paper describes Active Notebook, a collection of software tools which work together to allow individuals to label document-based information with conceptual classifications, and organize these documents into a semantic taxonomy for later browsing and retrieval. Tools are also provided to support sharing documents and references with peers. Novel techniques for taxonomy sharing avoid the need for a single, global taxonomy to which everyone adheres. Ongoing work on active reminding is described.
