The application of altmetrics in library research support Program Moscone Convention Center
120 (N)
Description :

Every couple of years a new trendy topic comes to the fore, and of late it's been all things #altmetrics. But what are alt metrics really and what do librarians need to know about them?
The landscape of bibliometrics is in great flux as traditional metrics of scholarly impact (i.e. H-index, citations, and impact factor) meet new web-native metrics of social/societal impact. Researchers and those who support them -- libraries, grant administrators, and scholarly communications offices -- need to be aware of these metrics to understand what they can tell an researcher or institution about their reach, who is engaging with their research, and what they're saying about that research.
Join Altmetric and librarians from key institutions for an overview of the landscape, challenges/opportunities libraries should consider, and efforts on establish standards and best practices.

All the Data: Privacy, Service Quality, and Analytics Program Moscone Convention Center

Don't Freak Out: Fracking the Customer Data Goldmine Program Moscone Convention Center
2002 (W)
Description :

Borrower privacy is a “third rail” for most librarians. Is it time for a change? Customers have come to expect highly-personalized service based on past use; they get recommendations now for everything from shoes to music. Is it time for libraries to leverage their “big data” to provide personalized service? How can we do this without compromising our principles? In this panel discussion, we will recap privacy concerns; outline opportunities for customizing service; and share concrete examples from libraries that have repurposed borrower data to provide value-added services.

Effective Library Marketing with Social Media Program Moscone Convention Center
120 (N)
Description :

Marketing is now, more than ever, a core business of libraries. In
a recent PEW study, “31% [of respondents] said they know not much or nothing at all of
what their libraries offer.” One of the most cost-effective ways to reach a wide audience
is through social media. This program will explore the New York Public Library’s social
media strategy that has allowed it to build a loyal following through content marketing,
and will demonstrate how NYPL’s tools and approach can work for any size library or
organization.
NYPL’s social media strategy utilizes SocialFlow, an optimized publishing technology
that analyzes real-time conversations and activities on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and
Google+ to enable social media managers to post the best possible content at the best
possible times. The library’s director of digital engagement, Johannes Neuer, and
subject matter experts from SocialFlow and TLC will offer presentations and lead
discussions about SocialFlow and similar social media management utilities.
