The article points out that the notion of documentation culture is linked with the notion of the social information order which is an essential part of the social infrastructure of a country as well as supranational and international structures. It also points out that the notion does not have its stable place in the typology of cultures nor in the hierarchy of different categories of culture. The author shows the relation between documentation culture and the information culture, IT culture, organizational culture as well as material and spiritual culture. In the summary, the author states that documentation culture is the part of culture whose creations are passed to the next generations as cultural heritage.
