Abstract

For fifty years information scientists have argued that information science, or IS, in an interdisciplinary subject area, a claim I appraise here. I am mapping a representative sample of citations from IS article literature, from the period of 1973 to 1998, against the Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress classification schemes; thus far, through Dewey, I have de facto charted the 1970s, 1980s and early-1990s.
