It aims to determine the relevance of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s (DLS-CSB) library collection by examining the citation patterns of Human Resource Management undergraduate theses from 1991 to 2013. A total of 612 undergraduate theses which generated 15,275 citations were analyzed. The research design used is descriptive method. Citations were extracted from the reference lists of each of the thesis submitted and sources of data includes; title of the cited material, publication date and type of the cited source of information. The data gathered were checked against the library collection by searching the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) to determine availability in the library of the cited materials and rank the list produced according to the number of times the title has been cited. It was found that students made use of various sources in their research in which books were found to be the most cited information material followed by journals. It was also discovered that majority of the materials cited were published from 1981 to 1990 and the most cited title was Management, a book written by Richard Daft, followed by Journal of Applied Psychology. It was also found that most of the references used by the students were available in the library. The study highlights the information materials used by the students for their research work and those which need to be added to improve the collection.
