Jessup and Valacich, 1993

In 1993, Len Jessup and Joe Valacich noted, "It is difficult to even begin to ask what effects GSS will have or how they will be used because the term Group Support System is somewhat nebulous. Indeed, there are marked differences from one GSS to the next. By 'Group Support System' we mean computer-based information systems used to support intellectual collaborative work." (p. 5)

from Jessup, Leonard M., and Joseph S. Valacich, Group Support Systems: New Perspectives, New York: Macmillan Publishing Company, 1993.
