Presented as part of panel discussion, "Assessment Strategies for Digital Collections Using Altmetrics: results of a white paper and experiences from the field", at the 2015 LITA Forum. Panelists: Stacy Konkiel, Elizabeth Richardson, and Grace Constantino This panel will bring together librarians and an altmetrics industry representative to explore how altmetrics can be implemented in digital collections to help assess their use. We will cover the current state-of-the-art in measuring the impact of digital collections (including server logs and Google Analytics), discuss genres of altmetrics and their usefulness in measuring different types of attention among various stakeholder groups, discuss technology options for implementation, and showcase digital collections that are using altmetrics to showcase their value to administrators, funders, and the public.
