A large number of tools has recently emerged supporting information management for individuals in their work context. Semantic technologies play an important role in the development of such tools as they facilitate advanced organization, annotation, navigation, and search capabilities. This study contributes to the design of such tools by outlining how a user-centred design methodology can be applied to develop usable and effective user interfaces. SPONGE, the resulting system, encapsulates core functionalities that are needed for managing personal information and for seamlessly sharing personal information within knowledge networks.
