Barager on Form in Information Retrieval

This is a link to the second chapter of Gail Barager's Master of Communications Studies thesis on scholarly publication in hypertext. It is the last section of this chapter, headed "Practical Literature," that is the most relevant here. It provides a useful overview of the literature on navigational strategies and hypertext design in text chiefly concerned with information retrieval.
