LIS 502: The Journal Literature of LIS Paper
In collaboration with a LIS librarian please select a scholarly journal in LIS, carefully review its table of contents for two entire years, one year from the 1960s, and 2010. Identify trends for each year, speculate on how the discipline has evolved and where it might be going.
Written paper 5-7 double-spaced pages (excluding notes and bibliography). Please be sure to put your name, the course number and title, date, and assignment number and title on your document, and number the pages. Times New Roman 12 pt font and double-spaced text.
In addition to your review of the tables of contents for each issue for both years we ask that you select one (1) representative article from each year. Your write up should offer the reader (your colleagues in this course) a sense of the mission, purpose, place, and impact of the journal you select for this assignment.
For this assignment you will need to visit with one of the LIS librarians, Daniel Tracy or Sandy Wolf (find contact info to the right).
