University libraries must adapt to an academic landscape that is increasingly competitive and focused on assessment. As researchers and universities seek new ways to demonstrate their value and differentiate themselves, librarians are carving out new roles in research support and university evaluation.

Helping researchers and university leadership to better understand and apply bibliometric data plays an important role in deepening the data information and scholarly publishing literacies at the entire institution, as well as in ensuring that bibliometric data are appropriately used in evaluative processes.

The University Library at the Technical University of Munich has developed a portfolio of bibliometric services designed to help researchers, university administration and university leadership understand the meaning, limitations, and applications of bibliometric data, as they seek to improve the visibility and impact of their own work and that of the university as a whole. The Library’s current service profile includes a comprehensive course, a consultation service for bibliometrics and research impact, and close collaboration with university departments such as the Offices of Evaluation or Faculty Recruiting to integrate bibliometric analysis into personnel and strategic decisions.

This paper presents the conception and implementation of the University Library’s bibliometric services and serves as an important resource for any library wishing to develop bibliometric or research support services at their institution.
