This is the only comprehensive annotated bibliography on hypertext/hypermedia. Hypertext refers to units of information interconnected with links. Hypermedia involves the extension of this concept to include information units in the form of graphics, music, animation, video, or any type of media that can be digitized. Hypertext/hypermedia systems allow users to access and interact with information. Listing nearly 500 citations, the bibliography represents the work of over 350 authors. Extremely up-to-date, the book is comprehensive through the first half of 1989. Hypertext/hypermedia applications in such areas as education, automobile diagnostic and repair systems, job training, medical diagnostic systems, electronic publishing, and job training are some of the ideas covered in this bibliography.

The bibliography contains items in the following formats: books, book chapters, journal articles, conference proceedings, ERIC documents, government publications, and hypertext documents. Dissertations, technical reports, and items in languages other than English are not included. The bibliography is arranged alphabetically by author. Primary access is provided by subject and author indexes. Each entry includes sufficient bibliographic information to locate the item in a library, acquire it through interlibrary loan, or purchase it. The book is suitable for all libraries.
