Author Profiles & Citation Metrics: An Introduction for Scholars
When: Nov. 8, 2023, 1 pm to 2 pm
Taking advantage of profile services and understanding publishing metrics can help you increase the discovery of your work and track its impact. This workshop will introduce you to ORCID and Google Scholar profile systems and give you some tips for making the most of these types of services. We will also highlight several widely used citation metrics (Impact Factors, h-indices, SJR indicators) and help to demystify what they mean and how to find them.
The Theory & Practice of Digitization: A Community Symposium
When: Nov. 9, 2023, 4:45 pm – 7 pm
Where: The Scholars Lab, Perry-Castañeda Library
Join us in the Scholars Lab for a symposium on digitization. What gets digitized and how it gets digitized are decisions that affect everyone, but most of all, marginalized communities that have been historically disadvantaged from participation in scholarship and the building of library collections. Come and listen to lightning talks from cohort members trained in OCR and digitization, followed by a keynote address by Dr. Raha Rafii.

It is a day dedicated to appreciating, discussing, and learning about GIS (geographic information system) technology and all that it enables.
Through our UT GIS Day events this year we hope to raise the profile of the innovative GIS work being carried out by the UT campus community and specifically highlight open geospatial research since 2023 has been designated a Year of Open Science by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
