Abstract

The present study considers the broad question, `Is there a convergence between information and communication?', by focusing narrowly on relations between the disciplines of communication and library & information science as reflected in cross-journal citations from 1977 through 1987, but in depth by analyzing the articles' authors, dates, title words, nature, and citation context of the relations. In general, possible areas of developing convergence includes pragmatic issues of telecommunication policy, and social (not technical) research on computer-mediated communication, along with some uses of documents and archives, written about by a variety of authors who do not yet constitute a cross-disciplinary invisible college.
