Traditionally, the impact of a monograph has been far more difficult to track than that of a peer-reviewed journal article. That is now changing thanks in large part to Google Scholar.
Book reviews and WorldCat offer traditional but still very important measures of the impact of a book. Lifting a substantive quote from a scholarly book review can really help convince members of promotion and tenure committees that a book has or will have an impact on its discipline.
Also helpful with book impact are The Open Syllabus Project and Altmetric for Books. See the Altmetrics page of this guide for more information.
