The value of information can be studied from 4 perspectives: the economic perspective; the organizational and resource management perspective; the costing, pricing and evaluation of information services; and the social value of information. Constructs a pragmatic framework for information value assessment consisting of 4 levels to determine information value in specific contexts, namely identification of the specific situation, specific determinants of the situation, techniques that can be applied to measure value, and the action that needs to be taken as well as the evaluation of the success of the process
