An Analysis of the Relationship between Book Reviews and Fiction Holdings in OCLC.
Shaw, Debora
Library and Information Science Research, v13 n2 p147-54 Apr-Jun 1991
Study of library holdings on OCLC compared with book reviews listed in "Book Review Index" showed a positive correlation between the number of reviews a book received and the number of libraries holding it. Positive and negative reviews were not differentiated, and the correlation was strongest with general and science fiction, weakest with mysteries. (10 references) (LAE)
