CINF members who were fortunate enough to attend the Wednesday afternoon symposium in San Diego on research evaluation heard several great presentations. For those who were not able to attend, I'm submitting a symposium summary article for the next issue of the Chemical Information Bulletin, so please look out for it. Some of the presentations were recorded and will be made available by ACS. Several speakers also gave permission for their slides to be made available, so I'm hoping to add links from the CINF website to content from the sympsosium.
In the meantime, if you want to read more about research program assessment/evaluation, there is a nice blog posting from a recent meeting of UKSG (UK Serials Group) on this topic. http://uksglive.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/role-of-library-in-research-evaluation.html
