For those with an interest in this topic, I have just discovered that 
there is a publication for sale from the SLA (Special Libraries Association).

Although it is probably somewhat dated (1987), it is also very 
inexpensive (on sale for $6.00 to SLA members, $10.00 to 
non-members).  As such, it might prove to be a viable starting point.
