Ideas:
“  I'm looking at citation patterns in U.S. law journals, using different tools to look at different issues. I don't have the personal bandwidth for a big data study, but I'm finding some interesting things even with my "little data" approach. Watch for a series of essays in Law Library Journal's "Practicing Reference" column.  ”
