 Tracing Discovery & Subsequent Use: Harvesting and Analyzing the Data

In 2016, NISO announced an initiative aimed at development of best
practices for documenting and understanding users’ paths between discovery
of content and accessing the content. Did users come in from a discovery
service, Google Scholar or some other available channel? What should that
signify to service providers? What does that mean for libraries? This
session will spotlight the size and scope of the issue as well as the
progress that may be made towards its resolution.

*Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 11:00am – 5:00pm*

Advancing Altmetrics: Best Practices and Emerging Ideas

This is an active area for a variety of reasons. There is an ongoing need
to justify the work, space and resources invested in the library. How best
to appropriately generate, synthesize, interpret, and deliver the most
useful data to demonstrate the return on investment made by the institution
is a pressing concern. What do we know to be best practices for using
altmetrics in assessment? How comfortable are faculty with the use of
altmetrics in the context of tenure and promotion activities?

NISO’s related working group has built a better understanding of use cases
for existing altmetrics, but already there are discussions on whether new
metrics might be usefully framed for measuring research impact outside of
the academic environment or for capturing the value of unconventional
outputs of research.

Will views and downloads usage indicators be sufficient to evaluate the
usefulness of data sets? What examples might be provided by studies of
COUNTER, SUSHI, and SUSHI Lite? What alternative approaches might be needed
or fostered in order to ensure the discoverability, usability, and
reproducibility of scientific data sets?
