  2. Do you know how to leverage alternative metrics and bibliometrics to help researchers tell their science stories?
  3. Are you confident answering questions about using social media to disseminate research?
  4. Do you want to be a trailblazer in this exciting area of librarianship and forge new relationships at your institution?
  5. Do you know how your expert searching and metadata knowledge can help you evaluate groups of researchers and communicate research impact?
