Gams, Erich and Reich, Sigi (2004): Following your colleagues' footprints: navigation support with trails in shared directories. In: Proceedings of the Fifteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext 2004. pp. 89-90. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1012807.1012833

Trails are a well-established concept to assist users in navigating through information spaces. However, most existing trail-based systems focus only on the World Wide Web and not on the users' overall information space, including corporate intranet shares or private file storage. We have adapted the trail approach specifically to fit shared directory scenarios. We describe an already developed prototype and report on results of a first user study, which indicate the usefulness of our approach.

Reich, Sigi and Gams, Erich (2001): Trailist -- focusing on document activity for assisting navigation. In: Hypertext'01 - Proceedings of the Twelfth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia August 14-18, 2001, Aarhus, Denmark. pp. 29-30. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/504216.504226

Trails are a long established concept of assisting users in searching and navigating hypertexts. However, existing trail-based systems are focusing on browsers only and therefore do not fully exploit the notion of trails. We propose trail-based systems to be open to any application and to any activity. For instance, printing a document from a word processor, posting a message in a newsgroup, or forwarding an attachment to a friend -- using one's favorite e-mail client -- may well be part of a trail. "Trailist" is a framework supporting the development of these trail-based systems. Its name indicates that, similar to the way "Tour-ists" travel on tours, "Trail-ists" make their ways through vast information spaces.
