Summary

This study is an effort to determine possible service performance levels in hospital libraries, based on access to the scholarly record of medicine through selected lists of clinical journals and indexing and abstracting journals. Specific emphasis is placed on (1) the citation verification through the use of the index and abstract journals, (2) the costs of verification in terms of possible levels of performance, (3) the accessibility of information through these instruments, and (4) the means to begin to define part of the function of hospital health science libraries under present institutional constraints. This study was designed to test a methodology as well as to provide data for planning and management decisions for health science libraries and library materials. The citations in a sample generated from one quarter's production of a core set of journals suitable for a hospital health science library were verified in bibliographic tools and the data were analyzed through graphic means. Findings and conclusions cover the value of a core collection of journals, length of journal files, performance of certain bibliographic instruments in verifying citations for interlibrary loan service, and the implications of study data for library planning and management.
