This study describes and evaluates key bibliometric patterns in the articles published by the former Journal of Education for Librarianship (JEL) during its first 24 volumes of existence from 1960 to 1984. Data from each issue of JEL were collected and analyzed using SPSSx. Since JEL became a refereed journal beginning with volume 12 in 1971, its scholarliness has increased dramatically - at least insofar as a quantitative indicator reveals. Before 1971 Just over half of all articles contained bibliographic citations. Afterwards, this proportion grew steadily, and in the 1980s nine out often articles were referenced. The number of citations per referenced article has also increased steadily, from eight before refereeing to 17 in the 1980s.
