Abstract: Quasars signal a unique phase of galaxy evolution when massive spheroids are rapidly being assembled, forming stars and growing their central supermassive black holes. Measurements of the metal abundances around quasars provide unique information about these complex evolutionary processes. Here we provide a brief review of the current status and implications of quasar abundance researc
