A task-based Digital Work Environment (DWE) has been designed and developed at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore to support the Division of Information Studies (DIS) Masters students’ information requirements for their dissertation work. This paper traces the evaluation studies of DWE to gauge the usefulness and effectiveness of its three different approaches to information organisation namely, alphabetical, subject category and task-based. The findings show that the task-based approach is most effective in terms of speed of accessing information resources
