The Spring 1984 and Winter 1986 issues of Library Trends both addressed the (interrelated) issues of LIS research and LIS education. Also during those years, articles by Amusi Odi (1982), Robert Grover and Jack Glazier (1986), and John Wilkinson (1983) appeared on this subject. Those articles are discussed in more detail later inthis paper.
A Social SciSearch database search in October of 1992 revealed only 8 articles citing the Harris piece. Only one of those--Buschman & Carbone (1991)--is specifically relevant to this discussion of LIS research.

An interesting fictional example of this type of crisis is provided by the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy, which describes in some detail the reaction of a traditional society to the introduction of a technological artifact--a Coca-Cola bottle.
