Three short reads

Three I’ve recently come across

Fresh look and further refinement for Google Scholar Profiles

On a related note here’s a discussion of Google Scholar research metrics compared to other products in the market.

Reflections on the Library Assessment Conference though I don’t understand why the author finds predictive analytics “creepy”.

Libraries and Kindles with a good perspective on the work of libraries and publishers in an information environment increasingly influenced and dominated by corporate players such as Amazon.

 

 

the future of libraries

Proquest has a short post entitled “The future of libraries” on its corporate blog.

Among the comments was this statement:

“Libraries used to be defined by their collections, but increasingly, they are defined by the role they play in assisting their institution to meet its larger mission.

An apt observation in light of the changes and shifts unfolding across the academic and research library landscape.

 

 

Altmetrics and Scholarly Impact

“Peer review still plays a critical role in evaluating science, but citation-based bibliometric indicators are becoming increasingly important. This chapter looks at a novel set of indicators that can complement both citation analysis and peer review. Altmetrics use indicators gathered in the real-time Social Web to provide immediate feedback about scholarly works.”
