One of Nick Moore's contributions to library and information research and practice was the development of a matrix to be used for analysing different countries' information policies. Conceptions of information policy have changed over time, from managing and disseminating government information to the role and use of information in organisations and society more generally. Orna (2008) has provided an overview of the historical development of information policy, which became important to governments in the late 1970s, whilst Mahon (1989) reviewed developments in European information policy up to the late 1980s. Information policy became a more widely prominent topic during the 1990s, coinciding with discussions around the information age and the development of information and knowledge based societies.
