After some time of planning and design, we are ready to jump into DMS.

Still I have a doubt concerning the maximum nr. of documents a single library can manage. I have read in Caledonia Consulting books (great books, I strongly recomend them) that one shouldn't let a single library hold more than 500.000 docs.

Sure, we are going to run into this size in the near future. So, should I create n identical libraries and instruct each group of users to place documents in an specific library?

Of course I could use document types to archive documents not accessed for a period of time but, could it be a problem to have a single library with more than 500.000 docs although 60-70 % were archived?

Thanks a lot in advance, Xavier Serra, IBV.
