Bibliometrics and Research Assessment: A Workshop for Librarians and
Information Professionals
Thursday, May 21, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Library of Congress, Madison Building, Montpelier room
Brought to you by SLA Maryland and the FEDLINK Technology Working Group

Librarianship is a constantly evolving profession. As the landscape in which
our patrons find and use information changes, we have to adapt and expand
the range of services we provide to ensure that we remain relevant and
valuable to our patrons. One recent change in this landscape has been the
growing demand for bibliometric and research assessment analytics at a
variety of research institutions. These analytics seek to understand who
produces research at those institutions, who they collaborate with, what
their research is about, and what impact their research has had. In
response, many librarians at these institutions have begun offering research
assessment services to their patrons.

This full-day workshop aims to explore the roles that librarians can play in
analyzing research at their organizations and to facilitate communication
among librarians who are, or are interested in, providing research
assessment services to their patrons. Through a series of keynotes, panel
presentations, and open discussions, the workshop will assess the need for
research assessment services, highlight librarians and information
professionals already providing these services, and identify opportunities
for expanding these services at other institutions.

Lunch will be on your own.

The full agenda and confirmed speakers will be announced later this month.
Remote attendance via webinar will be available. Registration will close for
the webinar two days prior to the meeting.
