Brent Nelson, Stéfan Sinclair, Susan Brown, Milena Radzikowska, Mark Bieber, Stan Ruecker


This paper presents a brief account of the form and function of the “table of contents” to establish a theoretical framework for understanding the form and function of this common element of book architecture with the aim of informing the development of a dynamic table of contexts for books and reading in the digital medium. This paper will thus theorize the relationship between textual studies and interface design in INKE, a project for Implementing New Knowledge Environments.
