Drop-In Workshop: Plant Your ORCID to Cultivate and Grow Your Academic Profile

 

ORCID iD (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is the emerging international standard for academics to identify themselves unambiguously and be connected clearly to their public scholarly activities. What an ISBN is for a book, an ORCID iD is for a person. But it is far more than that. As a Linked Open Data hub, an ORCID profile allows individuals to authorize relationships of trust with specific organizations, including government funders, universities, and publishers. These relationships can allow organizations to update an individual’s profile and verify its claims (e.g., a publisher can add a verified record of a journal article authored by the individual immediately and automatically upon acceptance or publication). These relationships of trust also allow individuals to share their public information quickly and easily with designated organizations (e.g., filling out a university/grant/scholarship application with a couple clicks). The top of each hour will offer a 10 minute introduction to ORCID, while the following 45 minutes will provide guidance to faculty as you create, complete and start to leverage your ORCID profiles. Please bring your laptop or tablet!

What's Brewing at Pollak Library

 

This year's event program will feature brief presentations by faculty members from across campus who participated in the campus wide celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, including The Frankenstein Meme exhibit and Frankenstein Meme Opens in new window programs.  Presentations will also showcase University Archives & Special Collections, new library discovery tools for archival material, and plugs for our Open Access Publishing Fund and Green Open Access Policy. A brief question and answer period will follow each faculty speaker.

Play Open Access Jeopardy!

During Open Access Week only (October 22-28, 2018), members of the Pollak Library Open Access Team will be hosting our Open Access Jeopardy game on a large touch screen in the Faculty Commons area on the second floor of Pollak Library South.

If you can't make it to the Faculty Commons or aren't faculty, don't worry! You can still play Open Access Jeopardy online any time you'd like.
