The Distributed Link Service: A Tool for Publishers, Authors and Readers

Carr, Les A., DeRoure, David C., Hall, Wendy and Hill, Gary J. (1995) The Distributed Link Service: A Tool for Publishers, Authors and Readers s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


The World Wide Web is a distributed service for hypermedia document retrieval. Adding a complementary hypermedia link service, from which clients can make enquiries of distributed sets of link databases, provides extra functionality for users: readers gain more subject-specific content-content media-independent links, authors gain freedom and flexibility in creating, composing and reusing their resources, and publishers can repurpose their information assets for different audiences. This paper describes a hypermedia link service that is based entirely on standard Web browsers and servers and is being used successfully in a spectrum of Web projects.
