Abstrakt

Services to researchers are a key strategic focus point for academic libraries. In many cases these
services are linked to performance management systems. However, this kind of system for measuring
scholarly research has unintended side effects and may demotivate researchers on a number of levels. This
presents somewhat of a catch-22 for research libraries. This article describes the Bibliometric Research
Indicator (BRI) in Denmark, show why the researchers may feel demotivated, outline the dilemmas and the
effects on libraries, and presents a possible course of action.
