In the draft British Standard for thesaurus construction we have used 
"document" with a very broad meaning, equivalent to "information 
resource" - it is just more convenient to have one word rather than 
two..

That definition is given in 
<http://www.willpowerinfo.co.uk/glossary.htm>.

Not all the terms in that glossary have been agreed by the BS working 
party, but "document" is unchanged from the current draft standard.
