This paper describes the results of a research project on electronic books and libraries. Two new forms of electronic books (Hyperbook and Visualbook) are discussed and various examples considered in detail. Dynamic WAIS Book is a particular hyperbook that is examined. It provides a powerful publishing environment for electronic books as it processes the text as documents on Internet. The Dynamic WAIS Book allows a user to search for information publicly available through the WAIS database and organises the results in a virtual electronic library (VEL).
