Pagination is the system by which the information on a newspaper, bookpage, manuscript, or otherwise handwritten or printed document are laid out.

In a strict sense of the word, it can mean the consecutive numbering to indicate the proper order of the pages, which was rarely found in documents pre-dating 1500, and only became common practice circa 1550, when it replaced foliation, which numbered only the front sides of folios. 1500 was a common year starting on Monday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Events February 7 - Julius III becomes Pope. ... Folio: In bookbinding, a sheet of paper, parchment, or other material folded in half to make two leaves in a codex. ...

Pagination can also refer to the process of organizing information onto webpages. For instance, threads on a bulletin board might be paginated such that 20 appear on each page.
