Faculty Use of University Library Reference Facilities for Citation and Data Information.
Clever, Elaine C.
A user study to determine the ratio of citation-bound queries to data-bound queries originated by university faculty and processed through reference department personnel or by independent use of reference materials in the university library revealed a majority (75%) of the queries are citation-bound. Important implications are suggested for the training of university reference librarians and the selection and development of reference tools. The skillful use of the newer tools of citation indexes, journal indexes, and other sources of bibliographic information is necessary for the provision of citation-bound services. (MF)
