Product Description: Hypermedia & the Web An Engineering Approach David Lowe, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia Wendy Hall, University of Southampton, UK The rich online world offered through the Web is marred by the chaos which underlies it. At the very early stages of understanding how to harness the power of this new medium, electronic document creators, managers and researchers often spend time on technology innovations at the expense of adopting the sound engineering principles which have paid such dividends in the software industry. Hypermedio & the Web approaches interactive information (concentrating on hypertext documents) as a structure requiring management, quantification and documentation. From analysing the purpose for which a website, CD-ROM or online archive is created, assessing the characteristics and resources needed for the process of building each one, to the assessment of the end product itself, this book attempts to carve out features that are essential to the successful structuring of information in an electronic environment. This is an ambitious book charting an emerging discipline. It is an essential tool to help developers and educators shape and maintain useful and relevant electronic information. 'Hypermedia Engineering hasn't produced many tangible benefits in real-life situations, because very few people practise it. That's why the book is needed.' David Barron, Southampton University 'This book is interesting and excellently fulfills a current need [by] providing an exhaustive and up-to-date vision of the hypermedia field.' Fabio Vitali, University of Bologna 'The strength of this book is its breadth - it covers many of the issues in hypermedia with examples from the technical to the managerial. Students could use these as starting points when designing or evaluating hypermedia systems.' David Sharp, Imperial College of Science and Technology 'Information systems developers and managers should find this a helpful guide for developing hypermedia applications.'

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
