Find your SelectedWorks page by visiting the SelectedWorks Gallery at http://selectedworks.uakron.edu

Once you find your SelectedWorks page, select “Login” from the menu in the upper right. Your SelectedWorks page is associated with your UA email account. You must use your UA email address to log in and edit your page.

If you have never logged into your SelectedWorks page, use the “Forgot your password?” link to reset the password.

There may be content on your SelectedWorks page that you did not add. If so, it was taken from your department’s website by the student assistants who created your page. Regardless, you are now free to edit this page as much as you like.

To upload your CV, look in the “About” tab for the second item, “Curriculum Vitae.” If you hover your mouse on this section, boxes will appear to let you to upload, remove, or replace a file. Upload your CV here. You do not need to create a new CV for your SelectedWorks page; simply update and upload whatever CV you use for communicating your accomplishments to your department and others in your discipline. It is best if you save and upload your CV file as a PDF file, as PDF is the only file format that will display the same on all screens and platforms.

Science Faculty Research Gallery Reception- Thursday Jan. 23

Please join us on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 3:00pm at the Science Faculty Research Gallery reception in the Science and Technology library.

In the sciences, most research output is in the form of journal articles and over time a tradition developed of honoring particularly excellent articles by putting art from the article on the journal’s cover. To ‘get a cover’ means the researchers have combined excellent research with something visually engaging. If you walk through the halls of a research building, you will see journal covers like these proudly displayed on doorways and lab windows.

This gallery collects journal covers from University of Akron researchers in Biology, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Polymer Engineering and Polymer Science.

Know the Roo Sessions

As you may know, University Libraries is hosting two sessions in conjunction with the Institute for Teaching and Learning entitled Know the Roo: University Libraries Resources, Services, and Partnerships to Enhance Success. The sessions are today (4/17) at 1:00 and tomorrow (4/18) at 2:00 in room 154. I am lucky enough to be hosting the sessions and wanted to share the Libguide that I prepared (with plenty of help from Trevor and Lisa): http://libguides.uakron.edu/faculty. This is just for these sessions and can grow into a more general guide for faculty. Please send me any ideas you have for additional content or let me know if you would like to add to the guide.

As an aside, Trevor and I are aware that three of the widgets are not working properly. They will be fixed ASAP!
