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.
