Publication Activity of Academic Library Directors.
Rayman, Ronald; Goudy, Frank Wm.
Comparative statistical analyses of publication records for the library directors of the 50 largest academic libraries in the United States revealed that: (1) total years of library experience bore no relation to publication activity; (2) the directors' publication records were generally average when compared to the field as a whole; and (3) the acquisition of advanced academic degrees, especially the library science doctorate, resulted in an increased rate of publication. Statistics for this report, which were compiled from citations in Library Literature and Library Science Abstracts/Library and Information Science Abstracts, included information gathered from several sources regarding total years of library experience and academic degrees held. Footnotes include 12 references. (Author/RAA)
