New bibliographic tools have been integrated into the NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR)'s website to create individual and organization-wide publication lists. These tools have been extended to create a novel method of compiling and presenting organization-wide summary statistics. Using ResearcherID and other NOAA library-supplied data to cross-link and validate the research bibliographies of STAR scientists, the visibility of STAR's work on the web is enhanced, making STAR's web presence a richer and better integrated information resource. Scientific and governmental partners and peers, science students, and the general public are among the beneficiaries. A second key result is improving the organization's ability to track and report scientific productivity to managers and funders. Centralized management of the repository enables it to be consistently maintained and reduces administrative burden on researchers as well as managers. This talk will discuss the evolution, development and implementation of STAR's online publication repository and summary dashboard. Special attention is given to the problems of acquiring, curating, and validating publication information from a large and geographically diffuse research team. NOAA STAR is home to over 150 scientists and technical specialists in remote sensing, atmospheric science, meteorology, oceanography, satellite altimetry, calibration / validation of satellite data, and satellite instrumentation. STAR scientists produce over 120 publications in scholarly journals each year.
