During recent years, bibliometric studies have become increasingly important in evaluating individual scientists, institutes, and entire observatories. In astronomy, often librarians are involved in maintaining publication databases and compiling statistics for their institutions. In this talk, we present a look behind the scenes to understand who is interested in bibliometric statistics, which methodologies astronomy librarians apply, and what features next-generation bibliographies may include.
