The view of Information Engineering as a value chain:

Creation / design -> Storage / distribution -> Retrieval / use

provides a basis for identifying the building blocks that are used in the development of Interactive Electronic Publishing projects and the binding required between them.

We have used this chain to provide the basis of the topic sections of El.pub. Topic sections provide links to further sources of information.
