We would like to present and discuss the iTrails framework for pay-as-you-go information integration which was recently presented at VLDB 2007 . iTrails allows users to provide mini-mappings on their data that sharply increase the quality of search results. The core idea is to extend the semantics of a standard graphical search engine such that the quality of search results approaches the quality of a full-blown information integration system. We would like to discuss the impact of iTrails on the CHI-side of Personal Information Management Tools. In particular, we would like to better understand how to provide interfaces and tools that allow end-users to make use of our framework. Author Keywords trails, PIM, dataspaces, search, pay-as-you-go information integratio
