Subject: Hypertext Bibliography

On March 7, from 4:00-6:00 in Gelman Library 202, George Washington
University will be hosting a Hypertext Symposium. The theme of the
Symposium will be, "The Role of Hypertext in Scholarly Communication."
The keynote speaker, Professor George Landow of Brown University, will
address the relationship of critical theory to hypertext, and the
development of Intermedia, a hypertext Web server used in graduate
education at Brown University.

In conjunction with the Symposium, an extensive bibliography on
hypertext/hypermedia has been compiled. In addition to citing articles and
books about hypertext, the bibliography provides links to:

some full text documents
home pages and other biographical sources for major writers on hypertext
sample course pages used in hypertext classes
hypertext resources on the Web

Although cross-disciplinary, the bibliography's largest segments are
devoted to education, library science, and literary research/theory.
