ABSTRACT
Citations in Master’s degree dissertations submitted to the Department of Library and Information Science, Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupathi during the period 2000 - 2007, were analysed for finding possible relationships between citing, citing articles and bibliographic forms. Frequency and percentage distributions (presented in charts, tables and graphs) and measures of central tendency were used to analyse data. Findings showed that journals were the most utilized reference materials in the dissertations. Also, library science in general had the highest number of citations followed by library management and cataloguing. The lowest numbers of citations were from education, literature and social sciences respectively. The findings from this study could serve as a user study with implications for collection, development and user services designing in libraries.
