Faculty seeking continuing appointment, promotion, and awards sometimes wish to demonstrate the impact of their research. Although no one measure is complete or perfect, author impact factors are one way of demonstrating this information. Attendees of this session will learn about free tools for gathering this data, including ORCID, Google Scholar, and the Lens. The presenters will walk attendees through the process of signing up for and beginning to curate their ORCID identifier. Laptops are encouraged. For more information about citation impact, please view the Library’s LibGuide,

Existing collections include some of the following content areas:
