Hypermedia Links and Information Retrieval

Li, Z., Davis, Hugh C. and Hall, Wendy (1992) Hypermedia Links and Information Retrieval At Presented at British Computer Society 14th Information Retrieval Colloqium, Lancaster University..

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Link creation in most existing hypertext / hypermedia products is a time consuming task. Microcosm is an open hypermedia system, in which various dynamic techniques have been used to attempt to ease the task of linking large bodies of information. This paper introduces the Microcosm model, and focuses on a technique for using computational power for dynamically creating links, known as retrieval links. The algorithm used for creating retrieval links is described and some preliminary experiments to assess the value of this facility are discussed.
