Systematization of procedure for forming information resources in the process of enterprise activities and their use in the management was carried out with the help of graphic and monographic research methods.

Furthermore, it is clear that the information resource is essentially media in a certain system, not the information itself. Therefore, the information origins can be regarded as places of origin of information resources or information resources themselves.
