Altmetrics is a part of discovery services to developing any online based institutional digital repository for enhancing the library and information services among the research scholars, users, students, and teachers also. The objective of this paper is to explore and access the altmetrics enabled services from the DSpace user interface for fulfilling the discovery services in an integrated digital library system.
