Spring Meeting Highlight – Citation Habits

The Library is a Growing Organism: Innovative Methods, Classic Missions
Date: Friday, 20 April
Time: 9:00 – 3:30
Location: Ithaca, NY (map)

Join us this April as Jeremy Cusker discusses a method he has developed for using ISI Web of Science to find the citation habits of whole lists of authors (i.e. an entire academic department) with an eye toward comparing “top journal” lists generated by ISI, Eigenfactor or others to what the faculty he works with actually cite. This can also be used as a tool by new librarians for learning about what the specific research interests of the departments they work with are.
