Abstract

This paper describes the development of a prototype user interface to support construction of `virtual personal libraries' from digital libraries. The virtual personal library provides broad support for user information activities such as browsing, editing, storing, and annotating. We propose the use of a book-metaphor interface that represents virtual books and bookshelves on computer displays. Users can browse, edit, and store information freely by using this interface. We also propose a pointer-storing method based on the concept of transclusion to legally validate the use of information resources. An extended HTML is used to realize the pointer-storing method on the WWW.
