While other research articles have looked at visibility of the library and reasons for where the link to the library webpage is placed, this article will explore how the location of the library link on doctorate-granting institution websites correlates with research output. In this article, the author used the Carnegie Classification framework for doctorate-granting universities and classified the library link location on their university websites to show that there was a correlation between placement of the library link and the research output of the university. The results show that doctoral granting institutions with higher research output put the link to their library on more prominent positions on the university website.
