What is the impact of science on society and how can it be measured? How can we efficiently use bibliometrics?  What are the ways in which librarians can engage and support the academics?

Exchange ideas with colleagues and find out the latest trends in academic publishing at the 2017 Library Connect Event hosted by the Chemistry | Biology | Pharmacy Information Centre of the ETH Zurich. Broaden your skills in bibliometric methods and research data management. Share thoughts and access information that can considerably influence your future library activities. Sign up for free, but be sure to register for this event by May 31st, 2017.

Interactive workshops are the main features of our highly engaging programme. Specifically, we will discuss:

  • The impact of science on society
  • Bibliometrics in use
  • How libraries engage and support the academic community

Our expert speaker, Jenny Delasalle will briefly introduce a handful of metrics, drawing on the Library Connect Quick Reference Cards and then we will get interactive! Participants are invited to explore different ways that bibliometrics or citation scores might be used, based on use cases and your own experiences. From evaluating researchers to ranking journals, bibliometrics can be controversial and are a subject of growing interest. We look forward to a lively discussion, exploring both concerns and opportunities with you.

Who should attend? 
Anyone involved with the purchase, management or assessment of information resources, as well as those whose roles rely heavily on research. That includes Heads of library, Reference librarians, Acquisition librarians, Information Managers, researchers and other Information specialists. Each year we tend to welcome an audience of delegates from universities and universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulen) at the Librarian Forums we organise worldwide.

Why should you attend? 
Discuss: Participate in our workshops, consult with your colleagues and share your challenges and best practices in an open but selected forum.

Learn: Understand Elsevier’s future plans and how our focus on research and education will help you manage your resources more effectively.
