Resource Use by Pharmacy Graduate Students: Dissertations and Theses as Collection Development Tools
This citation analysis of locally produced theses and dissertations was undertaken to discover the identity and characteristics of resources most used by graduate students in the College of Pharmacy. Resources are examined for material type, age, and subject dispersion. Core lists of frequently used titles—both journals and monographs—were developed. The presented data should assist in decisions regarding acquisition and retention. The study may interest others who are planning local citation analyses as well as those interested in pharmaceutics.
