In this article we deal with problems that organisations face with selecting, managing and accessing information sources. We limit ourselves to the question of the extent to which document information systems (DIS) and text management systems (TMS) can contribute towards improving the management and accessibility of information sources. We have decided not to adopt a technical point of view, but to describe the functions DIS and TMS could fulfil. We further explain matters by offering a few examples of TMS applications.
