Information Science is one of the important knowledge clusters responsible for Information activities ranging from information collection, selection, organization, processing and management. Though, ultimately Information Science is responsible for information dissemination. Information Science initially treated as information field but the advancement of tools and technologies changes the entire arena of Information Science. Today rather than information field it is treated as Applied Science domain with Social Science touch. Information Science is today responsible for Information-Technology-People interaction. Information Science changes it dimension with the advancement of knowledge cluster and IT. The paper is talks about Information Science including its need and role and generation wise characteristics and development. Paper highlighted changing dimension, tools and technologies related with Information Science.
