General NoteMimeographed
 Thesis (M.L.S.)--University of the Philippines, Quezon City
Summary, Etc.1 - Library materials
 1) the most cited bibliographic form was the periodical article. It accounted for 34.1 percent and 26.5 percent of the titles cited and the citations respectively
 2 - Types of libraries and information centers
 2) the distribution by subject of the cited and source materials ranked from highest to lowest are as follows:
 3 - General
 3) the number of citations to a given material declined with age of the material. The model year was found to be from 4 to 6 years. The rate of obsolescence was found to be constant at 3.3 percent per annum over a 15-year period
 4 - Organization and administration
 4) the highly cited materials are mostly surveys of different types of libraries, of which the most cited was the thesis of Isabel S. Sunio
 5 - Public services
 5) the most cited author/editor/compiler was Professor Gabriel A. Bernardo with 21 of his works cited
 6 - Technical services
 6) the most cited periodical title is the ASLP Bulletin, with its contribution of 23 percent of the articles and 28 percent of the citations. The periodical literature was found to follow a Bradford distribution with the ASLP Bulletin in zone 1 of the distribution. Four other titles together with the ASLP Bulletin constitute 56 percent of the citations
 7 - Information retrieval and automation
 7) the literature of Philippine libraries and librarianship was found to have grown significantly since library science was first introduced in the country. Eighty-eight and two tenths percent of the source materials were submitted from 1970 to 1980 while 82.1 percent of the cited materials were dated from 1972 to 1980
 8) the bibliography compiled from the 192 source materials was found to be incomplete, however, the sample size used in the study is large enough to be applicable to a larger portion of the literature, as seen from the Bradford curve for the cited materials
 The above findings revealed many characteristics of the literature of Philippine libraries and librarianship. It also demonstrated the applicability of citation analysis to this area of study. Further study and/or application of the techniques or other bibliographic forms to obtain a more comprehensive view of the literature of Philippine libraries and librarianship and/or on the theses and special problems submitted to Philippine schools from 1981 to 1985 to keep the data up to date are recommended
 The literature of the subject is its prime means of communication and reflects with great specificity the problem orientations of the researchers in that area of study and its growth points. This study used citation analysis to examine the literature of Philippine libraries and librarianship and to identify some of its characteristics. The sources of the citations gathered, organized and analyzed were 192 theses and special problems on library science and related subjects submitted to 24 Philippine schools from 1940 to 1980. Since the study is aimed at identifying characteristics of the literature of Philippine libraries and librarianship, only the citations to Filipiniana library science literature were analyzed using the techniques of citation analysis
 The major findings of the study include:
 The specific objectives of the study are: 1) to determine the distribution of the bibliographic forms cited; 2) to determine the distribution by subject of the cited materials and source materials; 3) to determine the time distribution of the cited articles and source materials; 4) to identify highly cited materials with personal authors/editors/compilers; 5) to identify highly cited authors/editors/compilers/; 6) to identify highly cited periodicals; 7) to determine if the literature of Philippine libraries and librarianship has grown substantially to be supportive of the discipline; 8) to determine if the bibliography compiled from the citations collected from the theses and special problems used in the study is comprehensive
