- In their paper, Wersig and Neveling find that what is now called information science developed, historically:
- "... not because of a specific phenomenon which always existed before and which now becomes an object of study -- but because of a new necessity to study a problem which has completely changed its relevance to society. Nowadays the problem of transmitting knowledge to those who need it is a social responsibility, and this social responsibility seems to be the real background of 'information science'."

The third phenomenon remains virtually virgin territory. (p. 202)
