Meincke, Peter P. M.; Atherton, Pauline
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 27, 1, 18-24, Jan-Feb 76
Proposes a new conceptual basis for visualizing the organization of information, or knowledge, which differentiates between the concept "vectors" for a field of knowledge represented in a multidimensional space, and the state "vectors" for a person based on his understanding of these concepts, and the representational "vectors" for information items which might be in a retrieval system which covers a subspace of knowledge.
