  2. 2. 2 — THE ROLE OF THE LIBRARY HAS BEEN CHANGING…FOR OVER 50 YEARS, NOW. — 2005 Library 2.0 “Next Gen” OPACs Make library resources more like Google 1970-80’s Card catalogs come online 2000 Google Institutional repositories 2008 NIH Public Access Policy Requires scientists to submit final peer- reviewed journal manuscripts to PubMed Central 2011 NSF Data Management Plan Proposals submitted to NSF must include a DMP 2002-3 Rise of Open Access 1994 Digital Library Initiative (NSF) Digital Library Federation Data repositories 2010 ACRL’s Value of Academic Libraries Initiative 2013
  3. 3. 3 — A NEED TO PROVE LIBRARY VALUE AS ACADEMIA BECOMES INCREASINGLY CORPORATIZED Academic libraries need to explain their “value proposition.” Public support for Higher Education is DECLINING Funding pressures & cost concerns are RISING + = —

  5. 5. — “Bibliometrics is an ideal field for academic librarians to develop and provide innovative services for both academic and administrative university staff. In so doing, librarians make sure to take an active part in the development of new strategies and in fostering innovation. Qualitative processes like peer-review need to be validated and are therefore increasingly complemented by quantitative methods like bibliometrics. Librarians are predestined to fill this role and strengthen their on-campus position.” Gumpenberger, C., Wieland, M. & Gorraiz, J. (2012). Bibliometric practices and activities at the University of Vienna. Library Management, 33(3), 174 – 183.
