This groundbreaking and highly practical guide looks at the role that library and information professionals can play in facilitating these new ways of working and demonstrating impact and influence. The contributors explain the theory behind the growing altmetrics movement, looking at how it came about, why it can help improve academics and their research profiles and where it sits among current measurements of impact.
