The goal of this year’s seminar is to bring together information professionals from disparate environments, backgrounds, and organizations to address the challenges this always changing, and sometimes strange, profession brings with it. How can we work together to create meaningful relationships and knowledge sharing practices to build your community of experts helping experts? How can we leverage our connections, resources, and skills to make our services more valuable and visible in our organizations? Let’s gather together and learn from 16 colleagues representing 18 institutions and organizations!”

Specialized organizations are moving beyond traditional bibliometrics to demonstrate value and further the organizational mission in creative and innovative ways. Use of scholarly metrics is no longer a value element just for promotion and tenure dossiers in academia. Many organizations are beginning to utilize research impact metrics to further their goals and objectives, providing accountability to funders, who are often the tax paying public.
Consultant Richard Hulser will provide an overview of metrics used for analyzing research visibility and utilization in specialized organizations. He will focus on a scholarly metrics proof of concept project implemented in a museum environment.
Details of this and other projects can be found in the recently published book The New Metrics: Practical Applications of Research Impact, edited and compiled by Elaine Lasda, Associate Librarian at the University of Albany.
Richard Hulser is president of Richard P. Hulser Consulting. He has expertise regarding scholarly research analytics with altmetrics, library and archives management, content licensing, technology strategy planning, vendor partnerships and negotiations, and digital library management. He comments on these topics through his blog Cybrarianviews.com. Richard is also an SIIA Certified Contents Rights Manager and a Fellow of Special Libraries Association.
