本研究旨在利用書目計量方法,探討資訊素養文獻的資料類型、出版國家、使用語言、成長情況與第一作者的生產力,同時以期刊文獻為範圍,利用布萊德福定律界定資訊素養核心期刊,並分析其特性與品質。研究結果歸納如下:一、資訊素養文獻主要資料類型為期刊論文,以美、英為主要出版國家,且文獻多數以英文發表;二、自90年代中期開始呈現持續且穩定的成長;三、期刊文獻分佈大致符合布萊德福定律及布萊德福-齊夫定律;四、核心區期刊的品質較優;五、核心期刊以季刊為主,其出版之相關文獻數量多寡與期刊發行時間長短並無絕對關係;六、核心期刊以研究性質為主,是大學圖書館及學校圖書館關注的重心,且與參考服務關係較密切;七、以發表一篇文獻之作者居多,而作者在資訊素養主題的研究生涯長短與其生產力無關;八、高生產力作者以女性居多,以教師為主,且以資訊素養、圖書館(讀者)利用指導及資訊科技為其主要研究領域。The purpose of this study is to explore the characteristics of the literature on information literacy, such as document type, publication country, language, literature growth and author productivity. The distribution of journal articles and core journals were examined by Bradford’s law and Bradford-Zipf’s law. The results of this study reveal that 1. periodical is the major document type; more than 66% literature were published by United States and Great Britain; English is the most frequently used language; 2. the literature growth rate is in a steadily up-growing trend since middle 90’s; 3. the zone analysis and graphical formulation from Bradford’s law and Bradford-Zipf’s law are examined and both are applicable to journal productivity distribution; 4. the quality of the core journal is better than the others; 5. 15 core journals are identified by the Bradford’s law and how long these journals has issued does not absolutely affect the journal productivity; 6. the core journals are research periodical primarily, most of them deal with academic libraries, school libraries, and reference services; 7. most of the authors published one document only, however, there are no absolute correlation between author productivity and their active years; 8. the most productive authors are primarily female and university faculty and their major research fields are information literacy, bibliographic instruction and information technology.
