Abstract: Weblogs, or blogs enable a new form of communication on the Internet. In this paper, we discuss blogs within a large corporation, and show their potential as a source of evidence to the expert search task. We describe characteristics of such blogs along multiple dimensions, and identify their utility to sub-problems within expert search. We finally discuss the use of blogs when combined with additional sources of information available within corporations.
