Title
Hirsch-type indices and library management : the case of Tongji University Library
Author
Abstract
Hirsch-type indices are applied in a library management context. In this article quantitative, statistical approaches as well as a qualitative discussion are used to study the case of Tongji University Library. A comparison is made between the properties of different Hirsch-type indices. It is further shown that Hirsch-type indices can illuminate the reading interests of readers as shown by their use of a library's collection, hence expanding the field of application of such indicators.
