Chicago -- A new LITA webinar, Taking Altmetrics to the Next Level in Your Library’s Systems and Services, will explore their uses. Altmetrics are traditionally viewed as the realm of evaluation and assessment, but altmetric data can offer valuable insights throughout the research lifecycle. It can help inform researcher decisions around where to publish or self-deposit, with whom (and where) to collaborate, and provide those tasked with facilitating the scholarly process a richer, more complete view of research attention and influence.

Instructor: Lily Troia, Engagement Manager, Altmetric
October 31, 2017, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Central time
Register here, courses are listed by date

This 90 minute webinar will bring participants up to speed on the current state of altmetrics, and focus in on changes across the scholarly ecosystem. Through sharing of use cases, tips, and open discussion, this session will help participants to develop a nuanced, strategic framework for incorporating and promoting wider adoption of altmetrics throughout the research lifecycle at their institution and beyond.
