    13. 13. Author Page
    14. 14. Role of Librarians …Librarians might help colleagues prepare their careers for a more social-media-driven environment by explaining basic social networking best practices, which might include something as basic as a profile on a site like Academia.edu, or any other publicly available site that allows users to list their publications. For example, Google Scholar has a component that allows users to claim articles and build a profile, with the option of keeping the profile private, although that would seem to defeat the purpose of these new analytic tools, that seek to measure public engagement. (Ovadia, 2013)
    15. 15. Activities  Which Research Network(s) are your professors using? (Look for 2-3 faculty from your school)  Where can you locate “experts” in your subject area?  Share your findings and experience as a blog posting
