University of Maine Social Sciences and Humanities Librarian Jen Bonnet recently submitted designs that she and her colleagues at the Raymond H. Fogler Library created to introduce faculty and grad students to the idea of altmetrics, or non-traditional metrics usually measured by downloads, social media mentions, saves, and citations. Jen explains:
I find that people who don’t know much about scholarly communication find the different types of open access confusing and hard to keep separate. I’ve started using this diagram (created in PowerPoint) in my basic explanations. If anyone would like to take the basic information and make it more aesthetically pleasing, that would be fantastic.
Suggestions for design, comments and general advice are also welcome!
