Practical Informetrics for Academic Libraries

On behalf of the UWM Libraries and the Libraries Staff Development Committee... Please join us for a keynote presentation by Dietmar Wolfram, Interim Dean & Professor at the School of Information Studies, on Tuesday, June 12th, 11 am-12 pm, in E 281. Professor Wolfram will be speaking about Practical Informetrics for Academic Libraries. Informetric techniques and measures have come a long way from the early days of citation counting. They can offer valuable insights into periodical and research evaluation. This presentation will provide an overview of classic and new measures used in scholarly communication assessment as well as readily available tools that simplify the process of collecting and analyzing data. This is part of a series in response to staff suggestions for professional development. We are pleased to have this great collaboration with SOIS. Look for more presentations throughout the year. Refreshments will be served. Hope to see you all there. Svetlana Korolev, Janet Padway, Tyler Smith On behalf of the UWM Libraries and the Libraries Staff Development Committee
