Title: Applications of hypermedia systems

Abstract

In this paper, we consider several new aspects of modern hypermedia systems. The applications discussed include: (1) General Information and Communication Systems: Distributed information systems for businesses, schools and universities, museums, libraries, health systems, etc. (2) Electronic orientation and information displays: Electronic guided tours, public information kiosks, and publicity dissemination with archive facilities. (3) Lecturing: A system going beyond the traditional to empower both teachers and learners. (4) Libraries: A further step towards fully electronic library systems. (5) Directories of all kinds: Staff, telephone, and all sorts of generic directories. (6) Administration: A fully integrated system such as the one proposed will mean efficient data processing and valuable statistical data. (7) Research: Material can now be accessed from databases all around the world. The effects of networking and computer-supported collaborative work are discussed, and examples of new scientific visualization programs are quoted. The paper concludes with a section entitled {open_quotes}Future Directions{close_quotes}.
