What you will find in this resource:

Terminology is very important in the age of digital information because digital information has an impact on some basic concepts of archival sciences and diplomatics, modifies the organization of the administrative work and records management, and requires new definitions, especially with regard to the legal value of electronic records. This short paper is based on the compilation of a Glossary which compares about 250 terms and definitions prepared either by groups of experts, or specific projects about electronic records. It proposes some general and specific comments about theoretical problems emerging from the analysis of the terms.
