AbstractA system and method for coding of documents, such as in a litigation support setting, uses machine readable indicia to increase the speed and accuracy of coding operations. For example, bar codes can be used on the documents to represent document numbers or other unique identifier, and can also be provided on "blotters" or menus and used to represent keyword data to be coded. Thus, a coding operator can scan a bar code or other indicium on the document and then scan the bar codes for all appropriate keywords. The system would then associate that document with those keywords. Once the bar codes or other indicia have been affixed to the documents, they can be used during further copying or imaging operations to make sure that the document feeders for those operations do not misfeed any documents, by automatically scanning the indicia and checking that they appear in the expected order. If they do not, the process can be stopped and the operator notified.
