Document triage is defined as the rapid process by which information seekers make relevance decisions on a set of documents [1]. With the rising popularity of small screen readers such as Amazon's Kindle and the ubiquity of smartphones capable of displaying documents, we are faced with the challenge of facilitating information seekers with effective ways of searching for information using these small screen devices, while bypassing the space limitation affordance. In this paper we begin to explore how information seekers go about their document triage process on small screens beginning by looking at structured documents. Copyright 2010 ACM.
