Project Summary

This project will work to create a series of workshops based on HuMetrics values that will be utilized both within the Dartmouth Library and more widely within the institution. Additionally, the project will be working with the ACRL New England Scholarly Communication Interest Group to use these workshops as a template for use by other colleges and universities within the region. Overall, these workshops will aim to embed the core principles of HuMetrics not only at Dartmouth but also more broadly within the academic library community in New England.
