This booklet aims to present some of the methods and approaches currently being used, together with some basic information about several projects and organisations specifically working around these issues. The purpose of this booklet, therefore, is to provide readers with an overview and taste of the many methods available. Considering the limited space available for each case, we have tried to show the most relevant features, encouraging readers to look for the whole version (most of which are freely available on the internet). Having all these resources listed together makes it easier to see the differences and commonalities between them. Our objective is not to show which one is best, nor to qualify them in any way. We have not done a theoretical analysis, nor look in detail at the subtle differences which some may see between “documentation” and the precise English translations of the Spanish “sistematización” and the French “capitalisation” . Despite the differences in names and languages, the methods and approaches presented here share a common objective: all of them seek to organise information, analyse it in detail, draw conclusions and share the results. This booklet presents some ways to reach the same objective. Looking at the common elements seen in all cases, or at the main differences, we invite readers to select the one which is better suited to their context or situation, or to combine elements from different approaches, and to use this to start a documentation process. We will be very interested to hear about this and about your results.
