    Digital Publication: Status, Opportunities and Problems




    Digital publications are a reality. High-resolution workstation displays and low cost mass storage systems create an electronic reading environment that exceeds the capabilities of traditional printed publications. Digital publications include text, line art, still images, and also include sound, video sequences and animations.
