The Internet revolution has made a wealth of information resources available for direct and easy access on the user's desktop. However, finding, organizing, and sharing appropriate information when needed has become a significant problem for many users, including teachers, students and researchers. Organized information spaces are easier to search, but finding or authoring these organizations is difficult. Our research focuses on three areas which require significant technological advances: (1) finding information relevant to users' needs; (2) organizing information for facilitating access in various contexts; and (3) collaborative information sharing. Current WWW search engines allow users to locate information of interest, but often return vast amount of irrelevant information. On-line centralized catalogs (like Yahoo) provide more relevant and well organized information, but they are costly to author and not customizable to individual users needs. More recent information discovery and filtering technologies attempt to provide relevant information to users by learning from their previous queries or from other users' queries and feedback, but results are still preliminary [Balanovic 1997][Moukas 1997]. Yet users need an easy way to access information relevant and adapted to their current task and interest at any time.
