Abstract
Thanks to the World Wide Web, users now, expect to link easily between disp arate information services, It is no longer enough to study raw data in one database, search for relevant published articles in another, and look at t he full articles in yet another. Users want to move seamlessly between all these sources, in order to follow lines of research efficiently and accurat ely. What are the problems in building links using data resources which wer e not designed for this purpose? This article presents examples drawn from recent work in The Dialog Corporation cis well cis from the European Union- funded ADLIB project, and examines the key issues of scalability and the in teraction between different types of publishers.
