There is a constant and growing focus on impact, efficiency, and data-driven decision-making in higher education today. Academic and non-academic units alike must continually demonstrate their value and communicate their impact to multiple stakeholders. At the University Libraries, UNC (University of North Carolina) Chapel Hill, librarians are adapting services and building expertise to meet these needs. Librarians help faculty and staff demonstrate research impact and advance teaching using the same digital scholarship tools and methods used for research. In this session, we discuss some organizational changes made by the Libraries to focus and facilitate these new services. We also highlight recent examples of this type of work: conducting text analysis of syllabi and citation network analyses of publications to help administrators and faculty in the School of Pharmacy improve curriculum design; creating maps to demonstrate the global reach of campus programs; and preparing bibliometric analyses and citation network visualizations to assist the University's NIH (National Institutes of Health) Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA) unit in illustrating the impact and reach of CTSA-supported research at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The presenters would like to acknowledge additional colleagues who have contributed to this project:
