dc.description.abstract As I approached the end of my senior year and was ready to enter the field of information systems, I decided that my senior honors thesis would be a good opportunity for me to explore an emerging technology. While the idea of using hypertext to store and retrieve information is not a new concept, it is a new technology that has only emerged in the last few years with the development of the personal computer.To learn more about hypertext, I divided my thesis into four sections. In the first section I wrote a short research paper to familiarize myself with the concept of hypertext. In the second section, I reviewed seven software packages that are currently being used to create hypertext systems. I was able to experiment with three of these packages, and my comments regarding them are included in this section. In the third section, I created a hypertext application by putting parts of my thesis into a hypertext system using the Guide software package. Last, I reviewed the contents of my thesis to summarize what I have learned from conducting this project.
