Academic institutions use bibliometric data to analyze and assess academic productivity, often without input from the library. As specialists in scholarly communication and citation metrics, librarians can be valuable participants in these assessment exercises. By increasing proficiency in research performance analytics, librarians can raise their profiles at the institution, develop internal partnerships and build a campus network of library champions. This presentation will focus on typical research assessment metrics, what they mean and how to use multiple metrics to derive significance.
