Altmetrics is an emerging area encompassing broader assessment of scholarly impact through downloads, links, and online conversations to fill gaps in assessing research. Bibliometrics is the traditional form of measuring the impact of scholarly research through citation rates. Sarah Jeong, Research & Instruction Librarian for Sciences, and Molly Keener, Scholarly Communication Librarian, will compare bibliometrics and altmetrics, and discuss their applications in science information literacy and research assessment in higher education.
The 6th international Open Access Week will be celebrated October 21-27, 2013, and the Z. Smith Reynolds Library will host events to engage faculty, students, and staff around this year's theme, Redefining Impact.
