Information Science is a field that still denotes traits peculiar to its structuring and solidification. Therefore still suffers external influences due to its low degree of autonomy. Its genesis is attributed to the information explosion that characterized the post - World War II and the subsequent conferences aimed at reviewing the implementation of machines in the information transfer process. Part of its social contribution is centered in information retrieval mediated by technology that ensures depersonalization of knowledge to individuals, groups and society through information and knowledge into action. The area has developed a focus on interdisciplinary technology that actually creates its limitations. The recorded information that constitutes its object by the possibility of manipulation, it also becomes a limitation, hence the need to adopt the technique of data mining to knowledge discovery in large data volumes and expansion of the universe of information retrieval.
