Abstract/Summary

The geoscience record stores information for later reuse. The management of bibliographic, cartographic and quantitative information have different backgrounds. All involve: deciding what to keep; structuring the record so that information can be found when needed; maintaining search tools, indexes and abstracts; defining the content by reference to metadata. The current approaches to managing the literature, spatial information and quantitative data may be subsumed in a more comprehensive object-oriented model of the information base.
