Abstract

In this demo, we present Coagmento, a Web-based, open-source tool for information seeking projects that collects information for individuals and groups and helps facilitate collaborative information seeking. Coagmento has been used in information retrieval and human-computer interaction studies to investigate individual and group information seeking behaviors in a lab or a field setting. In this demo, we discuss what Coagmento is, its past uses in prior studies, and its present state. We also discuss current work in progress. With Coagmento recently passing its 10th anniversary, we discuss our intention to make it a tool that is easy to configure for a human information behavior researcher with little programming skill.
