Part I: NIH Library Bibliometric Analysis
Summary: In response to the growing demand for research assessment services from researchers and administrators alike, many librarians have added bibliometrics to the range of services they provide to their patrons. In June of 2014, the NIH Library launched a bibliometric services program to formalize and expand the Library’s capabilities in this area. The program has since provided over 100 consultations, training sessions, and analyses to NIH staff. In this talk, we will provide an overview of the services we offer through the program, examples of projects that we have worked on, and a look ahead at how we might expand the program in the future.
Part II: Socrata Data Services
Summary: Influential public sector organizations are sharing valuable health data in innovative ways to fuel innovation, accelerate research, inform policy, encourage innovation, and improve transparency in the marketplace. This presentation will explore how CDC, CMS, state and local governments, foundations, and others are publishing machine readable data and APIs to better serve researchers and developers, policymakers, the media, and the public. We will explore what type of health data public sector organizations are publishing and how to find them. The presentation will conclude with a show-and-tell of exemplars in the health data community and a discussion of trends we are seeing in the health data space.
