1. Introduction

The World Wide Web( Berners-Lee and et al. 1994) is rapidly emerging as an attractive technology for a platform to develop systems for electronic document management and collaborative work, and there are lots of such systems already developed or in progress. Among those systems, some collaborative work systems support the concept of shared workspace( Bentley and et al. 1997, Bentley, Horstmann, and Trevor 1997, Frank 1997, Roseman and Greenburg 1996) which enables members of a work group easily share information for collaborative work. Since such information is shared mainly as a form of electronic document, a great deal of documents are created, read and modified during collaborative work. Moreover, after collaborative work is completed, many of those documents are still useful for the associated members and other peoples who want to refer those documents for their own purpose. So, it is desirable to integrate the shared workspace feature into electronic document management systems. In this paper, we describe an electronic document management system called CoDocs, which supports shared workspaces for collaborative work as well as manages electronic documents systematically.


2. CoDocs System Overview

The CoDocs system is a Web-based groupware system which supports shared workspaces for collaborative work among members of groups and manages electronic documents created during their work. A shared workspace is a repository for a work group, in which members of the group can upload, read and modify documents effectively, coordinating and logging their activities. Members of the group can obtain information on the previous activities of other members as well.

The CoDocs system supports two kinds of group activity: user group and work
