This panel aims to inform participants of, and to stimulate interest in, the diverse ways in which the measurement of information (informetrics) is used in real-world applications. Its timeliness is indicated by the recent increase in interest amongst ASIS&T members in informetrics that culminated in the endorsement of the change of status of SIG/MET from a virtual SIG to fully functional ASIS&T SIG. The panelists, selected for their diverse experiences in informetrics, address a diversity of issues in the use of informetric information in real-world situations. The format of the panel is designed to encourage audience participation with the audience being encouraged to suggest issues for discussion.
