English abstract

Forty years of teaching Information Science at both the undergraduate and graduate levels has revealed that there is in fact a fundamental definition that can be used to describe the field and guide its development in the years to come. In short, that definition states "Information Science is the scholarly occupation that attempts to establish the principles and laws that govern the augmentation of human capacities through technology." This concept can be conveyed in teaching through the use of the EATPUTr system model. My long experience in the field has also revealed several basic requirements in the education of Information Science. These requirements are discussed within the paper.

Italian abstract

Una definizione di base della Scienza dell'informazione risulta essenziale in una fase di sviluppo della civiltà in cui informazione, scienza e tecnologia pervadono integralmente ogni aspetto del vissuto. In breve, si può descriverla come quella disciplina che cerca di definire i principî e le leggi che governano l'implementazione delle capacità umane per mezzo della tecnologia, laddove il termine chiave è proprio implementazione.
