13 September 2012 Telescope bibliographies: an essential component of archival data management and operations
Author Affiliations +
Assessing the impact of astronomical facilities rests upon an evaluation of the scientic discoveries which their data have enabled. Telescope bibliographies, which link data products with the literature, provide a way to use bibliometrics as an impact measure for the underlying observations. In this paper we argue that the creation and maintenance of telescope bibliographies should be considered an integral part of an observatory's operations. We review the existing tools, services, and work ows which support these curation activities, giving an estimate of the eort and expertise required to maintain an archive-based telescope bibliography.
