In the chapter, a proposition of so-called infological interpretation of information is presented. The concept was formulated by Bo Sundgren (1973) in his publication devoted to data bases. Sundgren developed a consistent theory of a model of data base based on the concept of message as a specific set of data. The model inspires not only a new interpretation of information but also is a good base for manifold analysis of the concept. In the chapter, the following basic concepts are disused: properties of information, diversity of information, and information space.
