W01 - Workshop! Understanding and Using Altmetrics for Collection Management: An Interactive Overview
You need this ticket from Eventbrite to sign up: Pre-Conf Workshop 1: Understanding and Using Altmetrics for Collection Management: An Interactive Overview.

Libraries rely on multiples types, sources, and interpretations of data to inform collection management decisions, with an emphasis on anticipating and assessing local needs, cost, and use.  With the transition to digitally born and Web-based scholarly communication, altmetrics (“big data” about how scholarship is used on the Web) can tell valuable information about trending sources and scholarly topics, the tools researchers and faculty are using to promote and discuss their scholarship, and the impact of the scholarly communication platforms, such as institutional repositories, that libraries provide.  In this hands-on workshop we’ll explore how to integrate this data into e-resource collection management activities, and the evaluation and promotion of library initiatives. 

The session will cover the following topics and activities:

  • Explanation of altmetrics data, how it is collected and how it should & should not be interpreted
  • Overview of various altmetrics providers and how their tools can be used to discover discussions of research in mainstream media mentions, policy documents, blogs, and social media.
  • How to get a rich picture of “trending” research in all disciplines, which you can use to supplement your collection management decisions.
  • How to uncover the platforms and tools students, faculty, and the public are using to interact with research information.
  • How to gather, analyze, and communicate altmetric data about and within institutional repositories. 

REGISTER HERE! A ticket is needed for this event! Don’t Forget to add a Pre-Conference Workshop when you register for ER&L!

S33-01 - In Texas, we just call it Data
When people think of "big data," they consider text archives and user behavior and stop there. Every day more media is recorded than was recorded in the entire 20th century and it's only accelerating. Fundamentally, this data is just noise if it's not organized and understandable. As we consider sentiment, emotional content, and object recognition in video, a statement like “that’s a great idea” contains radically more complexity.
