A lot of studies on grey literature abound in the literature. Most of the studies, however, relate to disciplines other than LlS. This study determines the focus and trends of grey literature publications. Other objectives include determining the proportion of grey literature published that focuses on national, regional and global issues, identifying the various formats of grey literature prevalent in LIS, and the major sources used by information professionals in publishing their grey literature research.
