Faculty Profiles

Faculty Profiles highlight faculty at the college, including scholarship, grants and awards, and efforts related to student mentoring and research. Faculty may be tenured, tenure track, emeritus, lecturers, or adjuncts. Profiles consist of a number of details including:

  • Profile image - from College websitefaculty profile screenshot
  • Organization unit - Discipline and Collegium represented
  • Areas of Expertise - including subject areas (controlled vocabulary) and keywords
  • Publications, including altmetrics and open access versions or library access, if available. This is automatically harvested with review and approval by library staff. Manual uploads are also possible.
  • Related links - this might be a personal website, college website, project page, etc.
  • Grants - added by library/Grants Management via administrative side
  • Media mentions - added by library via administrative side

Profiles can be managed internally via library staff, or by researchers themselves through the site.


Adding Scholarly & Creative Works (Assets)

Scholarly & Creative Works can be added in the following ways:

1) Automatic harvesting - the library runs period harvests of faculty publications by Collegium. Matched assets are reviewed for accuracy by the library and once approved, the assets appear on researcher profiles. The accuracy of automatic harvesting process is improved when faculty records contact keywords, ORCID identifier, DOIs for existing publications, and any name variations.

2) Manual Upload - faculty can manually add assets using the Add Content link in the top menu bar. Assets are reviewed by library staff for completion. Once approved, the assets appear on researcher profiles.

3) Batch upload via CSV, RIS, and BibTeX uploads - if bib files exist from other reference management platforms such as Zotero, Google Scholar, or EndNote, files can be uploaded to a researchers profile. This is currently in test mode and available by request. 

We ask faculty to review their profiles annually or after recent publications to confirm currency and accuracy of content in their profiles.
