Abstract
This entry presents assumptions and presumed effects of the phenomenon of information overload. In addition to offering definitions and characteristics of the concept, the entry places it within the context of major themes of library and information science inquiry. Topics referenced to explain information overload include its relationship to "the information society," information retrieval, information seeking, information poverty, and cognition.
