Information Science: From the Development of the Discipline to Social Interaction

Olaisen, Johan

Today's technology is making information a central focus in modern society. This presentation of current work, by a number of leading experts, explores the dimensions of a field that will be central to the way we work and live in the 21st century. The field of information science has two aspects: the technology of information itself and the use of information. While the key questions in information science today concern both areas, the dominant trend in research is moving from information technology to the information user. This text offers a Scandinavian perspective on changes in the structure of information that will reshape the products we buy, the services we use and the ways that we work.
