Library and Information Science
The citations in 187 articles on bibliographic instruction published in thirteen library science journals were analyzed to determine the extent to which authors cited sources from library and information science compared to sources from traditional subject disciplines. The results suggest an insularity of user instruction literature not only from other subject disciplines but from the larger field of librarianship as well.
