Abstract: We have started to generate and catalog bibliographic statistics for the Chandra mission. As a result, the databases associated with the Chandra bibliography continue to expand in scope and purpose. Publication data, including number of citations, are collected for each Chandra proposal and stored in the bibliography database. Scientific metrics based on these data are computed monthly and stored in the metrics database for trending analysis of publication statistics. The design of the system and some results for illustration are presented. In addition, we have discovered some unexpected operational uses for the bibliographic database which will also be discussed.
