LEADing liaisons: From behind the scenes to center stage with new roles in metrics


Judith Brink, Colleen DeLory, Andrea Michalek, Clare Withers

Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland - Room 3


Discover how liaison librarians successfully connected with their respective departments to apply the power of metrics in telling the story of research impact. Their new approach included engaging with individual researchers around the value of metrics in articulating impact institutionally, nationally and globally. This evolution in the liaison role required learning about metrics; evaluating opportunities; assessing applicable metrics and tools; and developing new services. The audience will also participate in a poll on liaison librarians’ metrics practices, comparing results with those from a global audience, and anticipate future needs with a metrics forecast and tips from an industry expert.
