|of these articles concerns itself with the development of information. Further meanings see under documentation (term clarifying).|
By documentation one actually understands the utilization from information to the further use. A goal of the documentation is it to make the documented objects purposefully discoverable. With the objects actsit itself usually around documents with an information content, which is to be used with the help of the documentation systematically. Documents can be in this sense of specialized technical , magazine articles or other block letters, in addition, pictures, films and the like.
The development of information is one of the substantial tasks of libraries and other documentation mechanisms. The description and distortion of bibliographic and archivalischer resources happen among other things by listing, i.e. the admission of documentation units into a catalog. This happens usually underConsideration of sets of rules (z. B. RAK or AACR) and by documentary languages and other controlled Vokabularien. Besides are used ever more frequently automatic procedures information retrievals .
One calls the data concerning an object, determined by documentation, meta data.
Table of contents
special and formal locking
in the library and documentation science frequently between formal locking and indexing one differentiates. Limited during itself the formal locking to (objective) the formal criteria of an object, goes thoseIndexing on its contents.
At present the card indices between alphabetical listing and systematic listing one differentiated. This distinction is no longer necessary with introduction of data bases.
some quality criteria from documentation are: Completeness, clarity, comprehensibility, structuringness, correctness, capable for editingness, comprehensibleness, integrity/authenticity (z.B. Change history)
a fundamental problem of the documentation is that it can become very expensive and only after a lead time economically disburses themselves. For this reason documentation departments are gladly saved in enterprises.
