Abstract

The terms ‘hypermedia’ and ‘multimedia’ have elastic defini‐tions. ‘Multimedia’ is sometimes used to describe single media systems which embody two kinds of information — text and graphics. In this article ‘multimedia’ will be used to refer to systems combining information presentation from several quite different media.

Abstract

Books include novels, dictionaries, telephone books, textbooks, anthologies, instruction manuals, proceedings of meetings and directories. The phrase “electronic books” has been applied to some types of CD‐ROM systems, palm‐top CD players, on‐demand text, electronic document systems of various kinds ± in fact to almost any kind of computer‐based text system that needs hyping up for marketing purposes. The future prospects for the electronic book are examined in this article.

Abstract

This review covers those aspects of communications which are relatively new and will probably have a continuing impact for at least two years — although this forecast, like nearly all other forecasts, is likely to be mostly wrong. A small amount of essential basic material is included — such as the section entitled ‘The bandwidth/speed imperative’, So much effort is being devoted to this subject, particularly in the case of POTS ( Plain Old Telephone System) improvements, that a few words about it seems to be in order.

Abstract

A conference entitled ‘Hypertext II’, attended by 200 people (with many on a waiting list), took place at the University of York on 29 and 30 June 1989. Hypertext I, held at the University of Aberdeen in March 1988, yielded ten published papers. This time there were parallel sessions with 18 papers, three symposia with several papers in each, and an exhibition with numerous demonstrations. Ray McAleese, Director of the Teaching Centre at Aberdeen, organised these conferences.

Abstract

The Web of Science (WoS) database has been intro‐duced recently by The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), but no applications of it have yet been described as far as I am aware. It is compiled from 8,000 journals providing some 130,000 articles annually, covered in the combined Science (1974 onwards), Social Sciences (1972 onwards) and Arts & Humanities (1975 onwards) Citation Indexes. New journals continue to be added. At present the storage requirements for this data is about 11.5 Gbytes.
