*About SIG/MET*
SIG/MET is the Special Interest Group for the measurement of information
production and use. It encourages the development and networking of all
those interested in the measurement of information and, thus, encompasses
not only bibliometrics and scientometrics, but informetrics in a larger
sense including measurement of the Web and the Internet, applications
running on these platforms, and metrics related to network analysis,
visualization, and scholarly communication. Hence, metric research recently
expanded beyond traditional research products – such as articles and
citations – to include web-based products, such as blogs, tweets and other
social media, so-called altmetrics. These social media are changing some of
the ways research is being disseminated and, in turn, influences the field
of metrics.
More information can be found at https://www.asist.org/SIG/SIGMET.

*SIG/MET Business Meeting*
SIG/MET will hold its business meeting on Tuesday, 11/10, 10:30-11:40AM CDT
during the ASIS&T Annual Meeting in St Louis in room Sterling 5 of the
conference hotel.
All those interested to get to know or join SIG/MET are welcome!
