Definition 17.8.1. Let $(X, \mathcal{O}_ X)$ be a ringed space. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a sheaf of $\mathcal{O}_ X$-modules. We say that $\mathcal{F}$ is locally generated by sections if for every $x \in X$ there exists an open neighbourhood $U$ such that $\mathcal{F}|_ U$ is globally generated as a sheaf of $\mathcal{O}_ U$-modules.
