dc.description.abstract The Universal Labeler (UL) supports a single, unified scheme of “labeling” which can be applied to organize various kinds of information including electronic documents, email messages and web references. The UL takes a project-centered approach to personal information management (PIM): 1. People keep information to get things done – to complete projects (“finish a course”, “re-model a house”, etc.). 2. Project-planning involves problem-solving: A person’s conceptualization of a project can often be characterized as a hierarchy of subproject/tasks. 3. Project structure, if made explicit, can aid not only in planning but also in the organization of related information. Projects, subprojects and tasks are represented by “labels” in the UL. Useful properties and behaviors can be associated with these labels – “remind me by” or due dates, for example. The UL is a step towards the integration of information regardless of its form (e-document, paper, web page) and towards the integration of information management with the management of tasks and projects. en
