Abstract:

Three types of information -- data, capabilities in symbolic form, and knowledge -- are distinguished in an informal manner. The role of each within an information system is sketched as the basis for a discussion of the item store. The item store is a general-purpose formatted store which will serve as a repository for files of inter-related items. The tree serves as the organizing principle for files within the store. The operational modes for the store are described as are the techniques being used to implement these operational modes.
