Googled yourself lately? Professionals, researchers, and scholars are often expected to develop a digital identity in order to participate in professional networks and promote their work. However, with countless tools and options available, crafting this identity can seem confusing and even a little dangerous! This workshop will discuss reasons, tools, and strategies for creating a cohesive presence online and will explore social networking sites like LinkedIn and Twitter and easy web authoring tools. Additionally, we will discuss using altmetrics and demonstrate tools such as ORCID, ImpactStory, and Figshare to consider new ways of assessing your professional and scholarly impact.
