English abstract

Social media is being used by libraries and archives in several innovative ways to drive users to unique collections and other content. At the same time, social networking (broadly understood) is changing online research, mainly by people circumventing libraries (on one end of a transaction) in order to obtain copyrighted information via crowd-sourcing. Finally, social media is changing the conception of a "good" or "influential" article - the rise of alternative metrics to citation counting, "altmetrics" is an important indicator of this trend.
