Abstract

INTRODUCTION This paper describes the development of the New York University Health Sciences Library’s Faculty Bibliography. DESCRIPTION Since 2000, the NYU Health Sciences Library’s Faculty Bibliography project has systematically tracked publications of the NYU School of Medicine faculty. The project has grown to a significant institutional service making prominent contributions to the School of Medicine’s public web presence and to advanced productivity metrics. Migrating from Gopher to EndNote to MySQL, the Faculty Bibliography harvests data from multiple abstracting and indexing resources and uses sophisticated quality assurance methodologies. At present the Faculty Bibliography tracks over 228,000 publications of well over 13,000 faculty, including faculties of the NYU Colleges of Dentistry and Nursing. Both technical and social engineering aspects of the project’s success are discussed; the project’s role in deepening professional contact between the Library, clinical and research faculty, and School administration is stressed. NEXT STEPS The Library currently envisions broadening coverage to include faculty engaged in scientific and medical publishing from other schools and colleges at NYU. We also anticipate significant improvements in the project’s methodology once the ORCID initiative takes root.
