Snacks provided, RSVP: http://bit.ly/altmetrics-rsvp

Join the LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable for a discussion about:

  *   evaluating scholarly publication quality (from disciplinary considerations to predatory publishing),
  *   assessing impact with traditional and altmetrics*,
  *   and creating scholar/researcher profiles with services such as ORCID.

With presenters:

Monica Berger is Electronic Resources and Technical Services Librarian at New York City College of Technology, CUNY. She is an Associate Professor and her scholarly and professional activities focus on scholarly communications and popular culture.

Marta Bladek is Freshman and Instruction Services Librarian at John Jay College. A few years ago, with Kathleen Collins, she created a Faculty Research Resources libguide that introduced the JJ community to measures of scholarly impact, including altmetrics. In addition to maintaining the guide, Marta prepared workshops for JJ faculty and the college-wide Personnel Committee, published a Scholarly Communication column in the C&RL News, and wrote about Bibliometrics Services and the Academic Library for College and Undergraduate Libraries.

Margaret (Meg) Smith is the Physical Sciences Librarian at NYU. She has co-created a scholarly metrics research guide and workshop at NYU and teaches a variety of metrics- and data-related workshops at the CUNY Grad Center Library. She also teaches data librarianship for the Pratt Institute's School of Information and Library Science.
