    Often, quantifying the amount of information (i.e. mehr, weitere) can be substituted by writing "..., um sich über ___ zu informieren." – Jan Sep 15 '11 at 11:02

"Mehrere Informationen" does not mean what you want it to mean. "Mehrere" means several.

"Mehr Informationen" is fine, "mehr Information" would also fit.

  • Quite right, "mehr" und "mehrere" have a different meaning. I want more... "Ich will mehr", I want several of... "Ich will mehrere..." – Ray Sep 16 '11 at 9:22
  • "Mehr Information" is rather used in a scientific context (IT/mathematics/cybernetics). – user6191 Oct 27 '14 at 17:37

Another widely used alternative in the meaning of your example is:

... weitere Informationen ...

Here's how you'd translate it back to English:

mehr Informationen  –  more information

mehrere Informationen  –  several pieces of information

From this it's clear that you want mehr Informationen.
