Title
Basing reference service on scientific communication : towards a more effective model for science graduate students

Abstract
Outlines a proposed reference model to promote more effective interaction between reference librarians and graduate students. Drawing on sociological studies of scientific communities, the model uses a sequential set of search strategies to enable students to conduct a thourough literature review and identify significant research. The aim of the model is to enable librarians to play a genuine role in the education and socialization of future scientists. Steps involved in the model consist of: searching subject indexes; identifying review articles; searching for ancestors (also known as footnote tracing) and using lists of references from relevant publications to find earlier research studies; searching for descendants (citation searching using citation indexes such as ISI's Science Citation Index); identifying key documents; and current awareness
