You can use Biblioso to coordinate the creation of books and book-like materials such as articles, Web pages, white papers, manuals, and marketing material. The key elements of a successful documentation project include proper definitions of project goals, scope, and turnaround times for each individual work item based on previous experiences and industry standards as well as ongoing tracking and reporting of project progress.
Biblioso provides an ideal platform for the coordination of the following types of documentation projects:
- Writing projects Biblioso facilitates document exchange between content creators and managers to help raw content to be created and assembled. This typically involves the development of requirements and concept specifications, identification of the perceived audience, and the creation of table of contents and section outlines.
- Editing projects Editors, graphics artists, and other resources who improve the quality of content can use Biblioso to exchange documents, discuss issues, create glossaries, and track style conventions. Biblioso automatically maintains version histories for all documents, provides glossary and style sheet databases, and keeps track of project status and deadlines.
- Production projects Production processes include indexing, desktop publishing, proofreading, printing, binding, and conversion into electronic formats. By using the available edited and corrected versions from the Biblioso document libraries associated with the project, and fitting tasks to schedules, Biblioso facilitates seamless handoff and timely delivery of the final content.
In a full-scale documentation project, writing, editing and production processes follow each other in sequence. However, it is also possible to run these project types individually and independent of each other.
