University libraries are partnering with campus administrators, departments, and groups on providing bibliometric and research impact services and metrics. Research impact data is being used as an assessment tool for measuring faculty and research group productivity; in promotion and tenure processes; in grant and funding applications; and in program and institution reviews and rankings. Libraries have the tools and expertise to assist in the gathering, organization, and visualization of research impact indicators and measures. The introduction of various bibliometric and database tools and APIs has provided libraries with the ability to responsibly extract a variety of research impact measures including publication, citation, co-authorship, H-Index, journal impact metrics, awards, and grant and patent activity. The University of Waterloo has growing expertise in the research impact assessment enabled by their campus-wide community of practice. Through this community of practice, professionals are sharing not only their approaches to working with data, but also tackling questions about which data sets they are using, what data might best support their common needs, what specific data and assessment techniques they use to explore discipline-specific impact, and how to access and manipulate data sets. This presentation will share some of the approaches these professionals are using, including the systems they are using for visualizing these metrics.
