Altmetrics and analytics in IRs and digital libraries: where we’re at and where we’re going (upcoming LITA webinar)

On Tuesday at 2 pm, I’ll have the pleasure of speaking with members of the newly-formed LITA Altmetrics & Digital Analytics interest group about the white paper that I recently wrote with Michelle Dalmau (Indiana University) and Dave Scherer (Purdue University). Join us!

Here’s the webinar description:

Altmetrics and analytics in IRs and digital libraries: where we’re at and where we’re going
When: Tuesday, June 23, 2015 @ 2pm CST (3pm EST| 1pm MST| Noon PST)
Where: Online – [no registration necessary; just tune in on Tuesday!]

How are users engaging with your digital collections? What are people
saying about your university’s research on the social web? Just a few
years ago, the answers to these questions were virtually unknowable, but
nowadays a wealth of analytics services can help you learn the answers
quickly and easily. And soon, standards will enable cross-collection and
cross-institution comparisons that will allow for better benchmarking,
reporting, and more.

In this webinar, Stacy Konkiel (Research Metrics Consultant, Altmetric) will report on the results of a recent white
paper outlining best practices and important issues in using metrics to
understand the use of digital collections and institutional repository
content. Robin Chin Roemer (Instructional Design & Outreach Services
Librarian, University of Washington Libraries) will share how the
National Information Standards Organization (NISO) is shaping the future
of analytics services through the development of altmetrics standards.

Join us on Tuesday at 2 pm Central!
