The research productivity could be assessed both by absolute and relative metrics. The author explains the essence of the Hirsh index and demonstrates how it is calculated. The author refers to the Russian Citation Index database to demonstrate the personal bibliometric indices of the number of the well known in the library community authors, so one could compare his/her own evaluations with the bibliometric data. In conclusion, the bibliometry potential to evaluate large scale scientific trends is revealed.
