Electronic publishing at the Documentation française.

Analysis of the working state of the electronic publishing experiment at the Documentation française. The object of that experiment will be two of the main actions of the Documentation française: publishing (periodicals and reports from various authorities) and information (document processing and creation of databanks). Starting with a first data collection (gradually increased and perfected), the electronic publishing will integrate all the steps : editing, restatement, preparation of the manuscript, printing, bibliographic entry and databank operation. The removal of redundant operations should allow to save up, though the electronic publishing still depends on the determination of standards in order to solve an important problem : the inconsistency between equipment and softwares.
