This article presents the conceptual evolution of inter-disciplinarily, trans-disciplinarily, and discipline, under information science from a theoretical framework. The text is a research whose primary purpose is to analyze scientific research developed in the context of interdisciplinary information science with participation in more than one area of knowledge. Using the concepts presented and those that contemporary authors studied in different areas, for composition of a conceptual framework that presents itself. The results of the research have enabled profiling of research in the area, about the use of different approaches and concluded that different forms and levels of interaction are found in information science. It is therefore concluded that the concepts have changed and that caused significant changes in their meanings. These changes lead to an ongoing re-evaluation and updating, in the context of information science and its implications, because it is an interdisciplinary science.
