Abstract

Disclosed is a method to staple one or more documents to a set of documents in a library. The staple relationship logically ties two otherwise discrete, independently defined documents together. This relationship is a one-to-one relation where the attaching document can be referred to as the "stapler" and the receiving document can be referred to as the "staplee". A "stapler" may be attached to a set of "staplees". A "staplee" may be attached by a set of "staplers". A user may wish to attach one or more "staplers" to a set of "staplees".
