Two hundred and seventeen articles in College & Research Libraries from
2000 to 2006 were searched by title on Yahoo, Google, Google Scholar,
and ISI Web of Knowledge to determine the frequency with which articles
in the journal are cited, the effectiveness of the four search services, and
the relevance and applicability of findings to promotion and tenure. Yahoo,
Google, and ISI Web of Knowledge averaged between 2.8 and 3.5 citations
per title for the period covered and Google Scholar averaged 6.4.
The value of citations counts in the promotion and tenure process and the
importance of publications in the evaluation of librarians are discussed.
