It has been an eventful November so far. At work we are in the middle of changing into a new document database system – something that is not entirely easy on many points. It is not only the fact that it does not share many things with the old system, but it also has its problems – problems that must be solved before we leave the old. Among other things, we are still discussing how to best implement the concept of generic documents in the new database system hence it seems its an issue that none has yet thought of. Until the last couple of weeks.

Other than that, I’ve been in the works of cataloging my department’s many documents that up until now has only been present in 12 year old printed files with handwritten comments. This is easier said than done, but at least making up a thorough list of things will hopefully give the overall handling of documentation at the department more structure. Wish me luck.
