What is the information environment (IE)?
The concept has roots in Taylor┼fs information use environment (IUE)
It was proposed in the late 1980s to incorporate a user- centered approach into the discourse on the design and use information systems
The IUE provided a contrast to system-centered approaches
It challenged the assumption that users┼f actions are largely determined by features of the information systems with which they interact
Also that these actions can be conceptualized as predictable responses to system outputs
