An Architecture for a Collaborative Bibliographic Database

Beth Trushkowsky, Kamaria Campbell, Jeffrey Forbes


CoBib is a system that will allow affinity groups to effectively collaborate to maximize the searching and browsing utility of an academic paper database. The system will facilitate the process of surveying literature in a specific field by using the community's annotations and referrals. The database architecture for CoBib provides users within research communities the means to collaboratively index and annotate citations by supporting both searching and browsing behavior. This extensible architecture is a novel solution that is interoperable with existing data formats and systems and incorporates recommendations gathered from the community for the discovery of new citations.
