A Library Evolving: providing research impact and evaluation services

Other role:
Holmes, Kristi


Poster presented at the American Evaluation Association Annual International Conference, Chicago, IL 2015. Presented on 11/11/2015.


In early 2014, Northwestern University's Galter Library began implementing a cohesive set of services around research evaluation and impact assessment, formally structured in the library as the Metrics and Impact Core (MIC). Many of the MIC services utilize the library's expertise in bibliographic data, which can be mined, analyzed and visualized using a variety of techniques to gain a better understanding research impact. This poster will discuss the operationalization of these services from the standpoint of a modern medical library and present the partnerships, resources and tools needed to make this vision a reality. We will discuss the types of reports and activities we've developed to suit the needs of our stakeholders using bibliographic data, and the challenges and successes we've found along the way.
