Book Review


This is a very useful compilation of guidelines for cataloging interactive multimedia. According to the glossary of this book, interactive multimedia is "Media residing in one or more physical carriers (videodiscs, computer discs, computer optical disks, compact discs, etc.) or on computer networks. Interactive multimedia must exhibit both of these characteristics: (1) user controlled, nonlinear navigation using computer technology; and (2) the combination of two or more media (audio, text, graphics, images, animation, and video) that the user manipulates to control the order and/or nature of the presentation."
