ASERL webinar: J. Britt Holbrook, Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology, discusses his research on developing indicators for the impact of scholarly communication. Holbrook argues that, although libraries, librarians, and information scientists can play a useful role in developing such indicators, there are inherent risks in too much standardization. He believes our common goal should be to develop impact indicators that maximize the creativity and freedom of individuals to conduct excellent research. Holbrook offers several suggestions for how best to approach that goal. Original webinar date = November 12, 2013.
