Who do we use to educate LIS students- a teaser

Some months ago there was an interesting discussion on the JESSE list on
the merits of "different" types of citations - including those in
scholarly journals and elsewhere. And I have wondered for several years
whether journal citations and co-ciations track those we use in our
teaching. So....
The following list represents citations in publically accessable on-line
US LIS school syllabi collected for all ALA accredited institutions (as
listed by ALA COA) during the summer 2002. List includes all authors,
not just first authors - Thus citations to Lawrence and Giles' two
articles that have gained currency in LIS credit Lawrence and Giles each
with 8 "hits"
There are 4969 different names. The average number of citations per name
is 1.6 (std dev 1.9). There are a number of citations giving last name
only - for example "Taylor". As there are several Taylors cited, I made
no effort to attribute these. Because of great length, I limit this list
to authors with four or more citations. (Note Taylor A and Taylor R, for
example, make this list). Even when attribution is "almost certain" it's
not done here - e.g. Bopp R has 13 "hits," Bopp "no initial" has 5.
The list excludes institiutional and organizational citations (Lib
Congress, ALA, OCLC, etc)
More to follow - somewhere else - once these data have been more
carefully analyzed.
