Abstract: In any enterprise, principled decisions need be made during the entire life cycle of information about its acquisition, storage, creation, maintenance and disposal. Such information management requires some form of information evaluation to take place, yet little is understood about the process of information evaluation within enterprises. For evaluation support to be both effective and resource efficient, particularly where decisions are being made about the future of large quantities of information, it would be invaluable if some sort of automatic or semi-automatic methods were available for evaluation. Such a method would require an understanding of the diversity of the contexts in which evaluation takes place so that evaluation support can have the necessary context-sensitivity. This paper identifies the dimensions that influence the information evaluation process and defines the elements that characterize these dimensions, thus providing the foundations for a context-sensitive framework for information evaluation.
