Thesis systematically analyses publications of the Department of Wood Science and Technology of the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana. For the purposes of identification of all publications until November 2009 inclusive, we examined and selected the most suitable commands in the command search of the Slovenian catalogue and COBIB/COBISS system. For a further analysis of publications, we set up our own experimental database, including all of the acquired data. The bibliometric analysis covered publications of all Department authors according to publication year and language, as well as publications of researchers still employed at the Department in 2009, and articles scattered among various journals. We identified 5078 different Department publications recorded in the database with all the required codes. The number of publications was gradually increasing; it was the highest after 1990. Among document types in the Monographs group and other completed works the highest number belongs to graduation theses with code 2.11, among the Articles group and other component parts the highest number belongs to original scientific articles with code 1.01, whereas performed works (events) with the department number cannot be detected in the database. The majority of publications (80 %) is written in Slovene, while English prevails among foreign languages (17 % of all publications). A wide variety of articles is scattered among 146 Slovene and foreign journals. Among 24 selected researchers the numbers of publications per individual range from 773 and 6. It is not possible to obtain a complete bibliography of the Department by means of standard basic search commands of COBIB database. Data deficiency and errors appear; 69 records have no typology code and 225 records no institution code. We have also created a list of documents providing a basis for the library to complete the department bibliography with the missing data.
