The University Libraries at the American University of Beirut have been subscribing to Web of Science since September 2009, providing access to bibliographic records and citation information back to the year 1898. It has been without a doubt an invaluable asset to our user's research needs and those of the University Administration. We not only use Web of Science to assess the research performance and progress of our faculty members, departments, faculties, and the university as a whole in comparison to peer institutions, but we also use it for strategic planning, collection development and management, as well as our own bibliometric and scientometric research.
