Following from the Document Academy 2012 presentation of a similar name, this article commits to paper the beginnings of an exploration between the concepts around document (from neo-documentation studies) and museality (from museum studies). It will serve as an initial mechanism for the exploration into the history, use, and comparative usefulness of the terms in order to blaze a path towards organizing their relationship and potential use in practice. The article is a purposefully open-ended exploration that encourages feedback and suggestions.
