The concept of logbook started with a view to keep day-to-day navigation based records of a ship, for a better management of its operation. The duty watch signs into the logbook at the beginning of his shift, then signs off at the end, passing the watch duty to the next watch stander. This maintains a clear record of the ship evolutions in that time period, and the identity of the personnel on duty at the time.
Later on the concept was extended to a wide variety of other practices for the utilization and management of expensive and complex machines, vehicles, agricultural fields and so on.
In the modern era our personal computers do not need such a manual logbook, because they keep records of each and every operation performed. However, the terms login or logon, and logoff, derive from these precedents.
