"Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche (LIBER). Scholarly Metrics Recommendations for Research Libraries: Deciphering the trees in the forest, 2018. https://libereurope.eu/blog/2018/06/28/scholarlymetricsreport/
The digital era has brought new and exciting changes to scholarly communication. Modern scientific libraries and information infrastructures are obliged to face these new challenges in a professional way sooner rather than later.The monitoring and execution of policies, the facilitation of Open Access publishing, and support for research data management are but a few examples of adaptation to the digital era. The use of scholarly metrics is also an emerging field for academic libraries, brought on by digital change. To foster this vision, LIBER’s Innovative Metrics Working Group has set out recommendations on how academic libraries and information infrastructures can deal with scholarly metrics, and how to get started with the development of services to support this."
