Transformations in the scholarly communication landscape show no sign of abating. For this program, panelists focus on cutting-edge trends for tracking scholarly output: metrics, altmetrics, bibliometrics, and digital identity. This panel of altmetrics experts discuss the pros and cons of using metrics for ranking as well as how these technological solutions optimize discoverability of scholarly publications. Attendees will gain new insight into scholarly communication practices that will reinvigorate their partnerships with faculty. This EBSS/ULS program is co-sponsored in-name only by the ACRL Research and Scholarly Environment Committee.
