The aim of this paper is to remind the necessity of change of attitude to document processing (generally – information object) in all memory institutions (but it's possible to start in libraries). Despite the fact that the need of a change have been pointed out earlier, the traditional rules and proceedings are changing very slowly. The basis should be a different attitude to solving the situation – especially change of view of documents (to information objects); explanation and understanding of the meaning of changes (achievment should be semantic interoperability) and thereafter would be possible to formulate and interprete the new rules.

The paper briefly summarizes current situation in processing with a critical overview of limitations in using potential of current devices (knowledge organization systems, creating relations among entities). Afterwards it describes the steps that would lead to semantic interoperability in two levels: metadata and representation of knowledge.

In the conclusion are to be found few examlpes which ilustrate that currently accessible devices let us proceed from using cataloguing cards to describing relations between particular entites of information object.
