September was a busy month for IIS. Brian Lang, Chief Executive of the British Library, was inaugurated as the Institute's new president. Martin White, the retiring president, gave his 1992/93 presidential address entitled “Networks and Networking — Making the Right Connections”. Professor Charles Oppenheim of the University of Strathclyde gave the seventh IIS/ISI lecture “Do Citations Matter?” in which he reviewed the history of citation analysis and the significance of recent studies of the acknowledgements given in papers and how they fit into citation counts. He concluded by saying that yes, citations do matter, but we must be careful in how we use them.
