The analysis of the dynamics and the state of a wide interdisciplinary field such as library and information science (digital library including) presents various difficulties. It can be conducted from a number of viewpoints: phenomenological or historical, technological or sociological, futuristic or traditional, etc.; each of which is colored by different levels of optimism or pessimism of the respective researcher. Nevertheless, regardless of the scientific approach, the result of any study is usually presented in terms of analytical evaluation. This does not signify that the assessment of the changes is explicit. On the contrary, the evaluation process itself is more or less of an implicit character. In this regard, any serious analysis of the problems at hand should consciously take into account in relation to the current changes and dynamics of the social and technological realm. Shortly after the end of the World War II the library science community began to discuss and ponder the future of the institution of the library in the context of the developments of information technology. A new 'language saw its dawn: that of information science. In general the term information is widely used in a range of fields without being strictly defined. This peculiar situation is probably due to the lack of a general consensus of what the notion of information signifies and what the subject of study of such an interdisciplinary area as information science is.
