Collaborative querying seeks to help users formulate queries by sharing expert knowledge or other users’ search experiences. In our previous work, a Query Graph Visualizer (QGV) was developed for collaborative querying [2, 3]. In this paper, we report a collaborative querying environment (CQE) developed by incorporating the QGV into the existing OPAC system at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. Figure 1 shows the CQE. The system shows recommended queries next to the search results list. Users can click on the recommended queries to carry out further rounds of searches. Further, users can trigger the QGV to explore the relationship between the recommended queries. More information on the QGV can be found in .
