Abstract:

This objective of this thesis was to evaluate the use of hypertext technology for an automated office reference system. A secondary purpose, because of the relative newness of hypertext technology, was to provide a single reference document which describes hypertext and the steps needed in managing or developing a hypertext product. Individuals unfamiliar with hypertext technology can learn how to apply it in an office environment. The evaluation consisted of two phases, a literature review to discover the hypertext supports for a reference system and a prototype development and test of an Economic Analysis reference system. The literature review includes a review of hypertext features, advantages and disadvantages, applications including government use, factors affecting usability, and legal concerns. The prototype development answered questions in three areas economic analysis information required, hypertext development concerns, and applicability of hypertext to the office environment.
