Digital Library Brown Bag Series

The Digital Library Brown Bag Series began in 2003, and continues to cultivate interest from both IU and non-IU affiliates.  The series originated with a focus on digital libraries – standards, tools, and trends in the field – but has since expanded to include all areas and topics relevant to digital scholarship, including digital humanities and open-access publishing.  The brown bag series focuses on local practices and emerging trends, and is intended to encourage participation in digital library and digital research projects and initiatives.

No registration is required, but you may register if you would like a reminder of the event. For more information, please see

Understanding Citation Metrics: the Basics (or Behind the Green Curtain)

Citation metrics and academic /scholarly analytics are often used to judge the impact or significance of a researcher's work, but the data yielded is often problematic.  Join a diverse group of IU librarians for a discussion of citation and article counts, the journal impact factor, and other new metrics ushered in by new library tools.  Examples include Scopus’ Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP), the Impact per Publication (IPP), and the SCImago Journal Rank (SJR).   Questions and comments are welcome as we dive in to these exhaustive and versatile new online research environments.
