Physical (digital) entities in a variety of media that belong to the information space of IR systems, providing potential information. Information objects are used interchangeably with the term documents. Information Space. Information space is represented by information objects consisting of potential information and commonly structured according to IT settings of information systems. IR System. An information system which is constituted by interactive processes between its information space, IT setting, interface functionalities and its environment, and capable of searching and finding information of potential value to seeker(s) of information.

Xvii; 1980, p. 49): 1. A monadic stage during which information units are handled separately and independently of each other as if they were simple self-contained entities. 2. A structural stage where the information is seen as a more complex entity consisting of several information units arranged in some specific way. 3. A contextual stage where in addition to an analysis of its structural organization of the information-bearing units, there is required information on context to disambiguate the meaning of the message.

Context is thus limited to such features in objects. Searchers may provide relevance feedback, but this fact does not indicate any notion of effect on the searcher, only on the system. Further, it does not provide any social communicative context, see Fig. 1. Salton’s interest lies in isolating generated messages (texts) conveyed by signs (words and other attributes) in organized channels (information systems). Hence, implicitly Salton recognizes that contents of information objects contain, carry or have meaning (are meaningful or have sense), otherwise the calculation of word frequencies in texts would not be meaningful.
