Presentation Abstract

Citations found in Theological Seminary Ph.D./Th.D. dissertations completed between 2006 and 2010 at Andrews University were analyzed to determine how much of the cited resources were held by the library, what types of resources were used, and their age. The study showed that 69% of the citations were books, 84% of the citations were in James White Library holdings, and a majority of the material used was within 60 years of the dissertations’ completion date. The study also revealed that five of the 27 most frequently cited periodicals were included in ranked lists of three similar studies.
