1Joseph, K.: Wikipedia knows the value of what the library catalog forgets.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 57(2019) no.2/3, S.166-183.
Abstract: Shifting library catalogs from physical to digital has come at a cost. Catalog records no longer leave traces of their own evolution, which is a loss for librarianship. The subjective nature of information classification warrants self-examination, within which we may see the evolution of practice, debates over attribution and relevance, and how culture is reflected in the systems used to describe it. Wikipedia models what is possible: revision histories and discussion pages function as knowledge generators. A list of unanswerable questions for the modern catalog urges us to construct a new, forward-thinking bibliography that allows us to look backward.

2Elzy, C. ; Nourie, A. ; Lancaster, F.W. ; Joseph, K.M.: Evaluating reference service in a large academic library.
In: College and research libraries. 52(1991) no.5, S.454-465.
Abstract: Reports an unobtrusive study of the ability of professional librarians to deal with factual questions conducted at the Milner Library, Illinois State University. Standards were recruited to pose questions for which answers were known, to 19 librarians in 5 departments. In all, 190 test incidents (10 questions for each of the 19 librarians) were used. Librarians were evaluated on the accuracy of the responses given and on their responsiveness and helpfulness, as judged by the student proxies. Describes the methods used in the study, including the accuracy and attitude scales developed, presents the major results, and makes suggestions on the follow-up action that seems appropriate after a study of this kind has been performed
