Information science is an interdisciplinary science primarily concerned with the collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information. It studies, among other subjects, the application and usage of knowledge in organizations, and the interaction between people, organizations and information systems. It is often, though not exclusively, studied as a branch of computer science or informatics and is closely related to the cognitive and social sciences. It is also studied at the light of interpersonal communication and media. Information Science focuses on understanding problems and then applying information (and other) technology as needed. Some of the fields targeted by Information Science are: human-computer interaction, groupware, the semantic web, value sensitive design, iteractive design processes and the ways people generate, use and find information. Information Science should not be confused with information theory, the study of a particular mathematical concept of information. ==Relation with Informatics== Much of what is called "Informatics" today was once called "Information Science" at least in fields such as Medical Informatics. However when library scientists began to adopt also the phrase "Information Science" to refer to their work, the term informatics emerged in the United States as a response by computer scientists to distinguish their work from that of library science. In the UK, Informatics is a term for the science of information that studies natural, as well as artificial or engineered, information-processing systems. ==Other similar nomenclatures== Library scientists use sometimes the term 'Information Science' to refer to their work Computer science is sometimes called by some authors (erroneously) 'Information Science'.

Library science and information science are interchangeable words. They both revolve around classification and information regarding libraries, books, and reference materials.

Information science is strictly the study of science, and in this day and age, mainly computer science. Information technology is the study of computers as they relate to alleviating problems, and having business solutions.

Information science is an interdisciplinary science primarily concerned with the collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information. Information Science consists of having the knowledge and understanding on how to collect, classify, manipulate, store, retrieve and disseminate any type of information. Information science is wrongly considered a branch of computer science. It is actually a broad, interdisciplinary field, incorporating not only aspects of computer science, but often diverse fields such as cognitive science, commerce, communications, law, library science, management, mathematics, public policy, and the social sciences.

Information Science is an interdisciplinary field that deals with the study of the process associated with the storage and retrieval of information. It includes the gathering, manipulation, classification, dissemination, storage, and retrieval of information, as well as the study of how people, organizations, and information systems interact.Library Science is an interdisciplinary field that deals with the study of how recorded information is selected, acquired, stored, maintained, retrieved, and disseminated, specifically in relation to the operation and management of a library environment.---Information science and library science are related, but not identical; the first focuses more on the mathematical concept of information while the second focuses on how information relates to libraries.

Science can only answer questions with the information available at the time. Science can answer some questions but not all because not all information is available all the time.

Psychology is related to information science given that the two fields are closely tied. Cognitive science, for instance, is the perfect blend of the two subjects.
