||Web-based project management applications serve project teams and virtualenterprises to manage project information anywhere, anytime. Central to theseapplications is an EDMS that enables team members to store and organize allproject documents, independent of type and format. We consider two problemsregarding the adoption and effective utilization of such systems. Firstly, theadvantages of using an EDMS become apparent only after a relatively largecollection of documents has been stored and organized in the system. Secondly,EDMS's currently offer little support for searching and retrieving information thatstraddles various documents. In order to address both problems, we propose anumber of user abilities to add to current EDMS functionalities, offering the userincreased freedom in locating and placing a document within a collaborativeinformation space. We explore these abilities at the hand of two informationenvironments: one developed for the Swiss AEC industry, the other currently underdevelopment as a common and extensible library for design precedents' analyses.
