Description

Pacific University Libraries strives to provide our researchers with articles, books, and other content to support their research. By analyzing citations from researchers’ publications, we measured the Libraries’ impact on research at our institution. We used the cited references of Pacific-published works, our discovery layer, browser automation, and scripting to find the percentage of Pacific-cited works available through the Libraries. By applying this methodology in 2019, then 2020, we are able to assess the changes in our impact on research at Pacific. We will share our techniques and our metrics-based analysis of library value during a pandemic.

Demonstrating the Value of Libraries in Academic Research During a Pandemic: An Application of Web-Scraping Based Metrics

Pacific University Libraries strives to provide our researchers with articles, books, and other content to support their research. By analyzing citations from researchers’ publications, we measured the Libraries’ impact on research at our institution. We used the cited references of Pacific-published works, our discovery layer, browser automation, and scripting to find the percentage of Pacific-cited works available through the Libraries. By applying this methodology in 2019, then 2020, we are able to assess the changes in our impact on research at Pacific. We will share our techniques and our metrics-based analysis of library value during a pandemic.
