    Join the LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable for a discussion about:

    • evaluating scholarly publication quality (from disciplinary considerations to predatory publishing),
    • assessing impact with traditional and altmetrics*,
    • and creating scholar/researcher profiles with services such as ORCID.

    With presenters:

    Marta Bladek is Freshman and Instruction Services Librarian at John Jay College.

In addition to maintaining the guide, Marta prepared workshops for JJ faculty and the college-wide Personnel Committee, published a Scholarly Communication column in the C&RL News, and wrote about Bibliometrics Services and the Academic Library for College and Undergraduate Libraries.
