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.
