  • F. Cesarini

This paper presents the main design and implementation features of a system for managing multimedia documents that are composed of texts and images. Besides having filing and retrieving facilities, this system is capable of defining and managing various kinds of links that can be established between several different documents and document components. Interactive display and navigation through the network are supported. The system architecture is based on a relational DBMS for storing data, network links, and control information.
