Introduction to document management - SharePoint Server

When organizations do not have any kind of formal document management system in place, content is often created and saved in an unmanaged and decentralized way on scattered file shares and individual hard disk drives. This makes it hard for employees to find, share, and collaborate effectively on content. This also makes it difficult for organizations to use the valuable business information and data in the content.

Enterprise software solutions. Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, Version 1.1. Introduction The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set is a vocabulary of fifteen properties for use in resource description.

Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, Version 1.1

The name "Dublin" is due to its origin at a 1995 invitational workshop in Dublin, Ohio; "core" because its elements are broad and generic, usable for describing a wide range of resources. The fifteen element "Dublin Core" described in this standard is part of a larger set of metadata vocabularies and technical specifications maintained by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI). The full set of vocabularies, DCMI Metadata Terms [DCMI-TERMS], also includes sets of resource classes (including the DCMI Type Vocabulary [DCMI-TYPE]), vocabulary encoding schemes, and syntax encoding schemes. The terms in DCMI vocabularies are intended to be used in combination with terms from other, compatible vocabularies in the context of application profiles and on the basis of the DCMI Abstract Model [DCAM].

Indexing Digital (Electronic) Documents

"> Taking Stock | Model | Glossary | Bibliography | Credits Abstract Conversion from paper-based filing to an electronic document management system (EDMS) requires significant planning. Introduction Organizations have traditionally relied on paper filing systems for document storage and retrieval. While EDMSs provide much faster access to and retrieval of documents (which is a financial benefit in itself), the mere availability of a new technology does not justify its acquisition.

So what do you need to know about indexing to increase your document retrieval efficiency and save money? Types of Indexing Indexing can be field-based, full-text, or a combination of the two. Full-text indexes are created automatically. All organizations benefit from some combination of field-based and full-text indexing, but determining what particular combination is most beneficial to a given organization is a very complicated process. modules/IRMT TERM Additional Resources.pdf.
