Citation Survey of Education Literature.
Mochida, Puala
This survey was undertaken to determine what subject areas would need to be supplemented, should the "L" holdings of the Graduate Collection be transferred to the undergraduate library to form an "education collection" at the University of Hawaii, and to determine how well the libraries meet standards in providing resources to adequately support instruction, research, and educational programs. Fourteen representative journal titles were selected in seven specialized areas, using periodical guides. Number of references and call numbers were recorded for cited titles in bibliographies of the first article in the first and third 1975 issues. Journals and monographs were referred to approximately an equal number of times, and four subject disciplines accounted for over 75 percent of the literature covered by educational journals: (1) education; (2) psychology; (3) sociology; and (4) political science. The graduate library held 24 of 25 titles cited at least twice in the subject areas of education, psychology, and sociology. The study concluded that the libraries have resources to adequately support research in education, and that material in psychology is needed to supplement the "L" materials in the education collection.
