Looking for studies on role of documents in corporations
Subject:Looking for studies on role of documents in corporations From:Chet Ensign <Chet_Ensign%LDS -at- NOTES -dot- WORLDCOM -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 17 May 1996 09:37:51 -0500
I am working on a book about SGML, the Standard Generalized Markup Language,
and its role in standardizing the processes used to create and deliver
documents in corporations. The book will be published by Prentice-Hall later

If you know of any studies done in this area or if you know of organizations to
contact, I would greatly appreciate the leads. Your leads will help me back up
my anecdotal evidence with statistics, and better frame the issues involved for
those who make the go/no go decisions on publishing system purchases. It will
also help me put documents into perspective as key corporate resources,
something that I don't think is always obvious to the people at the top.
Thanks and Best regards,
