Abstract: This paper reports an exploratory study on resources and resource sharing among researchers in Intelligent Information Access (IIA). The investigation consists of two stages. In Stage One, the authors conducted a content analysis to identify resources used in 145 research papers and reports in two subfields of IIA; and in Stage Two, the authors carried out an online survey of IIA researchers to understand resource-sharing channels and the researchers' perspectives on resource sharing. The results demonstrate that IIA researchers make use of various types of resources developed by others. Most of these resources are knowledgeable sources or software systems that are freely available online. However, IIA researchers encounter various difficulties during the course of resource acquisition and use. The study suggests that a resource management system built on a well-established knowledge-management model could greatly facilitate the creation, sharing, and use of resources in the IIA community.
