This is the first in an occasional series of CTI publications. This series will include a number of monographs on specialist applications on computing in the teaching of the humanities.

The Victorian Periodicals Hypertext Project is a highly successful example of a collaborative and interdisciplinary initiative using hypermedia. The project was based at the Faculty of English, Leeds University, and brought in other participants from the University's Information Modelling Programme (IMP) department, as well as Leeds Polytechnic and Manchester Metropolitan University.

This project aimed to introduce students to Victorian periodicals within a hypermedia context and attracted a great deal of interest. This monograph by the developers describes the project, its background, funding, and evaluation, in detail. We hope this proves to be a useful reference document for anyone considering embarking on a similar project using hypermedia in teaching.
