Recommends technologies and techniques for document management with an emphasis on the processes that are appropriate when computers are used to create, access, and publish documents. The authors believe effective management of the intellectual capital of an organization requires central repositories, control over access to information, consistent use of document formats, and processes for workflow. They describe the nature of documents and their components and structure, examine how documents are used and controlled, explore the factors affecting design and implementation of a document strategy, and conclude with a case study from the Parliament of Tasmania.
