" Using Electronic Resources to Create Department Publication Lists "
Librarians have traditionally compiled publication lists for academic departments, however with the increasing number of journal articles and interdisciplinary nature of research, creating these lists can be extremely cumbersome. At the request of the Astronomy department last year, I developed and semi-automated a method of tracking their publications using the major scientific article databases. The publication list has proved very popular with their faculty and has provided a welcome venue for publicizing our library resources. In this presentation, I will discuss my method and the pitfalls that arose with the use of the databases, RefWorks, and distribution of the lists.
