Altmetrics. New Measures for New Scholarly Products

Thursday, July 13, 2017, 5:00 PM — 6:00 PM
Health Sciences Library, Charlottesville
CME Credits: 1.00

Altmetrics: New Measures for New Scholarly Products, Thursday, July 13, 2017, 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., Carter Classroom, Health Sciences Library. Presented by Andrea Denton, MILS, Research and Data Services Manager and Kimberley R. Barker, MLIS, Librarian for Digital Life, Health Sciences Library. Description: Measuring scholarly impact has traditionally been tied to the calculation of a scholarly article’s number of citations and the Impact Factor of its journal. Today, however, scholarly contributions take many forms: computer code, data sets, blog postings, tweets, practice guidelines and beyond. As the products of research evolve, so will the way in which credit is measured. This class will provide an overview of “altmetrics”, the movement to assess influence of both traditional and non-traditional scholarly contributions. We will define altmetrics, discuss why it is important in today’s digital scholarly environment, and demonstrate tools available to measure influence. After completing this course, the learner will be able to define altmetrics and compare it to traditional forms of measuring scholarly impact; name examples of scholarly contributions that are alternatives to traditional methods (e.g. datasets, blog postings, tweets, etc.); name examples of alternative means of measuring scholarly contributions (e.g. download counts, tweets about, etc.); discuss why today’s online, social environment necessitates a change in the way scholarly contributions are measured; name resources to learn more about altmetrics such as altmetrics.org; and name tools to measure alternative scholarly contributions such as Altmetric.com, Impact Story, Plum Analytics, etc. (1 CME credit)

CME Credits: 1.00

Introduction to Digital Life, Wednesday, July 19, 2017, 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., Carter Classroom, Health Sciences Library.  Presented by Kimberley R. Barker, MLIS, Librarian for Digital Life, Health Sciences Library. Description: Many people are surprised to learn that, even though they don’t participate on social media and only use their computers for work, they have a digital life. This is partly because publicly-available information about you is collected from the internet, and this information is used by companies to create records about you. Join Kimberley Barker for an overview of topics such as digital privacy, online reputation management, and online identity. Kimberley teaches individual classes on each of these topics, but this introductory class is a great way to begin understanding the scope of each issue.  She will also offer techniques for taking control of your digital life.
