Research Metrics & Scholarly Impact

This guide was created to help faculty determine the impact that their research, etc. has had.

Librarians as Collaborators

Librarians have many assets to help you tell the story of your scholarly contributions. You may choose to do this for Promotion and Tenure, grant applications, or your own personal curiosity.  Below are just a few of the skills that librarians bring to the table.

  • Broad view of scholarship - librarians can help you see how your subject area fits into the big picture
  • Expert searching skills - librarians can find citations of your work wherever they may be
  • Ability to use information tools creatively - librarians use a number of tools to paint a complete picture of the impact of your scholarly work
  • Neutrality - librarians can provide an external perspective for your department or the P&T committee
