5.3 Leveraging Library Expertise for University Rankings

It is becoming increasingly important for universities to monitor and understand institutional rankings. National and international rankings have a strong impact on student enrollment and on recruiting and retaining top-level graduate students and faculty. A key element in determining rank is how a university's research enterprise is represented within publication and citation databases. As experts in such systems, research libraries can leverage their knowledge of bibliometric analysis, resource management, and scholarly communications infrastructures to make significant contributions to institutional rankings initiatives. This session will provide briefings on how the libraries at Case Western University and the University of Rochester are leveraging library expertise to provide business intelligence and strategies to support rankings projects.
