Concerning the emergence of new demands and informational settings regarding interactions and socio-technical links, we aimed to relate the constructs “information” and “agency” so as to obtain subsidies for a reflection on the perspectives of “subject” in the field of information. Hence, we considered aspects such as transversality of the production of knowledge; the historical trajectory of concepts; and the creation of objects, thus making it possible to identify what the study of informational agencies and subjects can allow the coexistence of traditional approaches, in the field of information science, and those involving transversal readings in dialogue with information philosophy and other knowledge within human and social sciences. In the case of the first approach – intertwined under the scope of disciplinarity – we introduced aspects involving objective, subjective and social dimensions of information, guided by the search and use of information. In the second one, information and agencies are thought beyond the limits of a single field, transversal through readings that can consider politics, ethics and economy, not restrained within the relations among subjects, institutionalities, technologies and informational resources, but also with everyday agencies found in multiple networks and regimes.
