|Abstract||The transition from analogue paper publications to fully digital products is very much the publication trend of the 21st century. Organizations continue to grapple with the most effective publication
methods in this new digital age. Many publications continue to be stand alone and often in a Portable Document Format (PDF) with limited integration and normalization within a database structure. The adobe PDF is a considerable advancement in
accessibility and portability but can still require data management, consolidation and synthesis by users. Capture of all of the attribute data of geological studies would ideally be available in a database structure that is publically available.
There also remains a great deal of published material that has yet to be captured in a digital form from the extensive activities of the second half of the 20th century. There are a number of initiatives in Ontario underway to continue the capture
of predigital era data and to consolidate data into a database framework.|
