The purpose of this article is to provide information about author productivity as reflected through the number of occurrences
of personal name headings in the Slovenian online catalogue COBIB. Only authors associated with monographs are treated. So,
author productivity of monographs that has not been widely researched is empirically examined to determine conformity or nonconformity
to Lotka’s law. A random sample of 1.600 Slovenian authors is drawn from the authority file CONOR. Next, the authors are searched
in COBIB and each attributed the number of monographs. Using the formula: xny = c, the values of the exponent n and the constant c are computed and the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test is applied. The paper shows that the author productivity distribution predicted
by Lotka also holds for the occurrences of personal name headings in COBIB.

At the eastern border of the Carolingian Empire two different groups of elite emerged. When referred to, the individuals in one of the groups were called either by personal names, or by the name of the area they governed; individuals in the other group were called by the name of their people. Members of the first group administered the territorial units of the central area of the former Avar Khaganate just like the Carolingian chief officials and royal vassals in the interior of the Empire. The members of the second group were (indirect) allies of the Avars and had their own tribal prince and gentile nobles. The administrative centres of the Carolingian province Pannoniae developed in synchrony with the inner centres of the Empire, while the centres of power outside the Empire had their own special settlement structures showing a conglomerate of the courts of the tribal nobility.
