The Virtual Notebook System (VNS) is a distributed collaborative hypertext system that has made a successful transition from research prototype to commercial product. Experience in developing and deploying the VNS in diverse settings including biomedical research, undergraduate education, and collaborative system prototyping has developed insight into the use of systems for computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW). This paper provides a brief overview of the VNS, discusses some of its strengths and weaknesses with respect to collaboration, and draws some conclusions about the impact of metaphor and extensibility on the collaborative process.

We have developed the Virtual Notebook System (VNS) to facilitate information acquisition, sharing and management in groups. The VNS allows teams to create shared electronic notebooks upon whose pages they can place text and images and, in certain cases audio and video entities. Members of a team can interconnect the pages of a notebook with navigational links, making the notebook shared hypertext. Additionally special links, called action links, can be used to tie pages of a notebook to external programs. Here we discuss the architecture of the VNS and give a number of examples of its use. We also identify those aspects of the VNS development that seems to have been most important in its success.
