RLP Discussion on Bibliometric and Research Impact (BRI) Service Development

Join other members of the OCLC Research Library Partnership for an informal, small group discussion about the development of bibliometric and research impact (BRI) services.

This event has passed. Registration Coming Soon!


Libraries and their parent institutions are keen for quality analytics about their research activities and impact. Similarly, researchers increasingly require knowledge of the responsible use of research metrics to facilitate their research and career management activities. As a result, we have been observing the establishing of bibliometrics and research impact (BRI) services (also commonly called “research analytics”) in libraries, and we’ve previously hosted webinars where institutions have shared details about their programmatic efforts.

We encourage you to attend this discussion session both to learn and share about your own institutional efforts (even if those are still emerging).

Led by: 

  • Mei Ling Lo, Science Research Librarian, Rutgers University - New Brunswick Libraries 
  • Matthew R. Marsteller, Associate Dean for Faculty, Carnegie Mellon University Libraries 
  • William Mischo, Interim Head, Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, Berthold Family Professor Emeritus in Information Access & Discovery, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 

This opportunity is a follow-up of the recent OCLC RLP Works in Progress Webinar: Developing research impact services–Perspectives from three OCLC Research Library Partnership institutions. In advance of the discussion, we encourage participants to watch the webinar recording and read a recent blog post.

This discussion will not be recorded or shared after the fact, but we will summarize the discussion in a forthcoming post in the OCLC Research blog, Hanging Together, as part of our blog series on bibliometrics and research impact.

All affiliates of OCLC Research Library Partnership organizations are invited to participate.
