The author, Manager of the UIC Documentation Bureau, takes stock of developments in documentation over the past 10 years; he emphasises its importance for the railways and the administrative problems to which it gives rise, and provides details of the various levels of information. He goes on to define documentary research by computer and of selective dissemination of information. Finally he analyses the structures and links making up the UIC documentary network, and pinpoints the trends (integration, automation, microcopies, concise documentary summaries) which should set the pattern for the activities of UIC railways in the coming years.
