A Quantitative Evaluation of Library and Information Science Periodical Collections in the State of Ohio. Revised Edition.
Rogers, A. Robert; Kim, Mary T.
As part of a project conducted at the Kent State School of Library Science to investigate alternative methods for providing graduate education for librarianship in Ohio, a survey of Ohio libraries was undertaken to determine which geographical areas of the state have periodical collections in the field of library and information science adequate to support graduate study. The 214 periodical titles indexed in Library Literature during 1980 were searched in the OCLC database, and 23 Ohio libraries with major collections of library science periodicals were identified. These libraries were surveyed to obtain information on specific holdings for each title searched. A list of the periodicals indexed by Library Literature is included, along with tables which summarize the percentage of periodicals held by individual libraries with major collections. The holdings information has also been tabulated by state region. A supplement to the report details the specific holdings of the 23 libraries with major collections. (JL)
