UNYSLA Event Recap: Researchers Citation Habits and SLA Loyalty

By Sara Brown

Researchers Citation Habits:
Jeremy Cusker, Earth Sciences and Engineering Outreach Librarian at Cornell University, started the spring 2012 UNYSLA meeting by presenting his method for analyzing the citation habits of researchers, a feature not currently available Web of Science as a designated tool or function. This method enables him to gain a basic understanding of his department’s needs and research interests and, as it provides an overview of the research cited by faculty, it is useful for collection development purposes.

UNYSLA Spring Meeting Wrap-Up with Allison Perry

What a great Spring Conference last week in Ithaca, NY. More than 20 librarians from across the state attended The Library is a Growing Organism:  Innovative Methods, Classic Missions. With Jim DelRosso (president-elect) planning the program, we had speakers from various academic libraries presenting on citation habits, bibliometrics, and creating an innovative culture within your library. The speakers were engaging as attendees asked many questions and shared their experiences with each other. The conference also had two student shadows, Sara Brown and Esther Jackson, both from University at Buffalo, that introduced the speakers. Stay tuned as they write up their experiences and share them with the chapter on our website.
