How Did Computer Technology Revolutionize User and Technical Documentation?

Converting paper manuals into files on storage hard drives allowed entire libraries of information to be stored in a single database. Every database had to be organized and indexed to allow users access to the information.
This allowed the developers to divide sections by different criteria that the end user could use as reference points when performing searches.
