Information audit: procedures and its place in information chains

Peter Dalton

Abstract


A research project explored information auditing. For
this information management technique there are no
agreed standards and little explicit recognition of what
constitute the basic steps. Through a critical examination
of published literature common key stages were
identified, extracted and plotted on a series of matrices
for analysis. The findings highlight the necessary stages of
an information audit, comment on good practice
identified,and explore some features only applicable in
certain circumstances.

Keywords
