Discussion EBSS New Leader PowerPoints

Attention New Leaders for 2013-14:

Attention New Leaders for 2013-14:

Below are the New Leader PowerPoints that will walk you through who our EBSS Executive Committee leaders are for the upcoming 2013-14 year as well as provide you with a general overview of important committee chair responsibilities and calendar deadlines.  If you are a new leader moving onto the Executive Committee, or as a Section Chair or Co-Chair, please review these presentations beforehand and attend our New Leader Orientation Meeting on Saturday, June 29 at 8:00 am at the Hyatt Regency Chicago Grand B (where Consolidated is meeting).  Even if you are in a continuing leadership position or part of a committee, you may find these PowerPoints helpful so feel free to view. 

There is audio along with the PowerPoints and, together, the three presentations take a total of 12-13 minutes to view. 

For the New Leader Orientation meeting, come prepared with questions to ask as a result of viewing these informational presentations.

EBSS Past-Chair

Date: Thurs, 12/6/2012, 2:00pm - 3:00pm Central Time (Early login for tech setup and troubleshooting is suggested; the earliest login starts at 1:40pm CT, which is 20 minutes before the live discussion begins at 2:00pm CT.)   

Topic: Measuring Impact Across the Disciplines: Tools and Strategies for Supporting Faculty

Facilitators: Susan Ariew (University of South Florida-Tampa), Robin Chin Roemer and Rachel Borchardt (both American University, DC)

Discussion focus:  As librarians, how do we help our teaching faculty colleagues understand and assess their scholarly impact? Our panelists defined impact and outline the challenges of measuring scholarly impact in education and the behavioral social sciences, as well as in broader subjects in the sciences and humanities. The session covered traditional tools for measuring citation and journal impact such as ISI, the Journal Citation Reports and Scopus, along with more recently accepted alternatives such as journal acceptance rates, WorldCat holdings, indexing, and h-index via downloadable tools such as Publish or Perish. Additionally, we discussed the growing value of cutting edge online "altmetrics" tools and trends, with comments encouraged by all audience members.
