This study intends to analyze the information continuum model as part of establishing the relationship between records and information. The information continuum is a theoretical system designed to establish a new information concept from the record-keeping point of view based on the record continuum. It provides a conceptual framework that can identify the elements for information management that exist in record-keeping. Accordingly, in Chapter 2, the background and process of the information continuum development, which followed after the record continuum development, were reviewed. Then, the concept of information established by borrowing information science theory was examined in relation to the record continuum. In Chapter 3, the conceptual structure of the information continuum and the purpose and method of information utilization were considered. Afterward, the four dimensions and attributes that structurally schematize the elements for information management in record-keeping were analyzed. Based on this analysis, Chapter 4 tried to present the meaning and limitations of the information continuum.
