Introduction. The aim of the paper is to suggest two concepts, information stabilisation and information destabilisation, as usable in describing processes of information constructing.
Method. The paper has chosen two core premises representing panoply of practice approaches as guiding principle for analysing selected studies and for suggesting the two concepts mentioned.
Analysis. First, a reading is made of three studies to give examples of how to understand the two concepts proposed. Second, a critical view is given of the ways in which three selected studies from the field of LIS look at processes of information constructing in their analyses of information practices. Third, a discussion is taken of the benefits of using the two concepts.
Results. Using the two concepts seems to strengthen the concept of information practice by opening op for empirical investigations of both stability and changes in information activities as well as in networks.
Conclusion. The contribution of this paper is conceptual. The two concepts suggested are considered as potential usable when describing processes of information constructing seen as evolving network of actors. The concepts are based on theoretical assumptions about collective of agencies in general and active agency of material objects in particular.
