Basing Reference Service on Scientific Communication: Toward a More Effective Model for Science Graduate Students.
Ackerson, Linda G.
RQ, v36 n2 p248-60 Win 1996
Outlines a model to promote more effective interaction between reference librarians and science graduate students conducting literature searches in preparation for dissertations. The model uses a sequential set of search strategies: searching subject indexes, identifying reviews, searching for "ancestors," searching for "descendants," identifying key documents, and locating the most recent research.
