We have experienced the rapid proliferation of world-wide networked hypermedia systems such as Gopher, WWW, and Hyper-G on the Internet, particularly in institutions concerned with education and research. Despite the great popularity of these systems and the large variety of applications for them, they must be considered as being early representatives of their kind.
This paper starts out with a brief discussion of the current state of the art in the field of large-scale networked hypermedia systems. Then ways are identified in which future generations of networked hypermedia systems will differ from the present generation. This survey looks in particular at the following aspects: (a) types, preparation, storage, and interchange of hypermedia documents; (b) security, costs, and copyright; (c) navigation, search, and retrieval; (d) usability; and (5) hypermedia as a technology of integration.
