I was happy that LC noticed that article, too, and my editorial was
mentioned in American Libraries Direct. Not being above the occasional
vanity search in Google Scholar, I know that the faceted LCSH article
was cited twice (well, GS says 3x, but the last appears to be in
error) and the getting moving image FRBR data out of MARC article has
been cited once. Scrolling through C4LJ articles in GS, some have been
cited and I see that "Using OAI-ORE to Transform Digital Repositories
into Interoperable Storage and Services Applications" has been cited
six times, as has "The Planets Testbed: Science for Digital
More than citations, though, I think the journal has a tremendous
practical impact. People actually read it and use the information they
get there. If you want to publish to communicate and not just to check
off some requirement, C4LJ is a great venue. The large number of
submissions we've gotten recently suggests that a lot of people would
like to be part of it.
Whether that will impress a tenure committee is another thing, though.
