Abstract
Analyses the elements which make up the term 'information' so that a systematic strategy for defining 'information' can be arrived at and applied by those professionals engaged in providing information about sources of information, subject classification and indexing, and abstracting. Discusses the processes of communication ('self-communication' and communication with others) and their relationship with knowledge; knowing, remembering and learning; organizations and association; the role of language in communication; information, knowledge and data; and the distinction between the medium of expression and the actual message conveyed
