Abstract : TRANSDOC is an experimental programme for the electronic archiving and distribution of documents which was developed by a group of 6 French organizations. The TRANSDOC test yielded positive results and has made it possible to confirm the following: 1) it is technically possible to perform archiving electronically and the organisations needed to implement these new technologies do work; and 2) There is a good match between the services tested and the needs of users; new services can be created and current ones improved. Beyond purely technical tests, the significance of such testing which is oriented towards routine and the evaluation of the needs of future customers is, by now, obvious. TRANSDOC has made it possible to confirm that the arrival of these new technologies will considerably modify the information market in all its forms very quickly.
