"Laying the Groundwork for a New Library Service: Scholar-Practitioner & Graduate Student Attitudes Toward Altmetrics and the Curation of Online Profiles"

Kathleen Reed, Dana McFarland, and Rosie Croft have published "Laying the Groundwork for a New Library Service: Scholar-Practitioner & Graduate Student Attitudes Toward Altmetrics and the Curation of Online Profiles" in Evidence Based Library and Information Practice.

Participants identified time as the major barrier to use of scholarly profile and altmetrics tools.
