Information Storage

Information Storage

 

the process of transmitting information in time, while ensuring the invariance of the composition of the material carrier of the information (paper, photographic film, magnetic tape, punched cards). In general, information storage is based on the memory effect of a storage device of a fixed memory. In particular, information storage may refer to the storage of documents. Information storage is closely connected with information retrieval and therefore must be implemented with an obligatory adherence to the principle of addressability; one must also foresee the possibility of withdrawal of the information from the storage device and its reproduction in one form or another.
