Abstract This paper describes Dienst -- a Distributed Interactive Extensible Network Server for Techreports. Dienst is based on the World Wide Web protocol HTTP, and provides an object-oriented interface to a document model. The document model allows one to access the document as a whole or by named sub-parts and it supports multiple formats for the document. The server also supports a user-level browser with full-text search and rapid visual browsing based on "thumbnail" (very small page) images. The Computer Science Technical Report (CSTR) project is an ARPA sponsored effort to create an online digital library of technical reports from the nation's top computer science universities. This paper reports on efforts to develop Dienst, a server and browser for this emerging library. Dienst should be applicable to other kinds of collections as well. The server and browser are built on the framework of the World Wide Web system[1](and this paper assumes that the reader is already familiar with the t...
