        "Rooms: The Use of Multiple Virtual Workspaces to Reduce Space
         Contention in a Window-Based Graphical User Interface."

        D. Austin Henderson, Jr., and Stuart D. Card
        Xerox Palo Alto Research Center

        pages 211-243, ACM order number ACM 0730-0301/86/0700-0211 $00.75
