OCLC Research Distinguished Seminar Series Presents, "Mobilizing Usage Data: Scholarly Metrics and Recommender Systems" with Johan Bollen on 22 October 2010 at OCLC in Dublin, Ohio

The public is invited to attend this free presentation in person or online.

Johan Bollen is an Associate Professor at the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing. He is also the Principal Investigator of the MESUR project.

In this presentation, Bollen will present the outcomes of two distinct lines of research related to the mobilization of large-scale, scholarly usage data. He will first provide an overview of the MESUR project which conducted a scientific research program based on a large-scale collection of usage data donated by some of the world's most significant publishers, aggregators and institutional consortia that yielded detailed maps of science and a scientific survey of a wide range of novel impact metrics. He will also discuss the possibility of novel services to support digital scholarship on the basis of large-scale, near real-time usage data.

The event begins with a coffee and pastry reception at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Bollen's presentation starts at 10:00 a.m. (UTC 14:00) and is followed by a question and answer session at 11:00 a.m. (UTC 15:00). Complete details are available at the links below.
