BRIC 2019 - third annual conference!

Join your colleagues from across Canada for the 3rd Bibliometrics and Research Impact Community (BRIC) Conference. This two-day conference aims to advance the skills of librarians and information professionals in supporting research impact analysis and services. The 2019 event will bring together the diverse community that forms the BRI world: information providers (such as librarians and analysts) and information requestors (stakeholders such as directors, managers, etc). Participants will come together to exchange tips, learn practical techniques, and hear about how Bibliometrics & Research Impact are being applied in different institutions.
