Knowing who has been citing your research in what journals is more than curiosity or vanity; it is often required for tenure and promotion.  It can also help you to keep current in your field by leading you to articles that you might find useful.

A thorough assessment of where you’ve been cited requires searching in multiple library databases and some sophisticated web searching.  Keeping track of where you’ve been cited is important, so there will be a brief introduction to citation managers (RefWorks, Zotero, etc) and how to set up alerts to know when a new citation to your work appears.  

As always, we're happy to answer any questions and always welcome feedback.
