Catlin, Karen Smith, Garrett, L. Nancy and Launhardt, Julie A. (1991): Hypermedia Templates: An Author's Tool. In: Walker, Jan (ed.) Proceedings of ACM Hypertext 91 Conference December 15-18, 1991, San Antonio, Texas. pp. 147-160. http://www.acm.org/pubs/articles/proceedings/hypertext/122974/p147-catlin/p147-catlin.pdf

Recently Brown University's Institute for Research in Information and Scholarship (IRIS) extended Intermedia to allow authors to define Hypermedia Templates -- sets of pre-linked documents which can be duplicated. Templates facilitate the creation of consistent hypermedia collections by automating what can be a laborious task: making documents and forging links manually. In this paper we discuss the Hypermedia Templates project. We first describe a collection of Intermedia materials that has been electronically published and explain the information design principles that were applied to it. We point out some general principles for building consistent hypermedia collections and discuss how these were reflected in the list of features for Hypermedia Templates. We then describe a user's interaction with a prototypical Hypermedia Template, as well as details of the user interface that we have built to provide template functionality in Intermedia. Finally, we identify some key features that would be important components of any next-generation template software.
