Libraries face increasing pressure to provide relevant research services to faculty. With SelectedWorks faculty profiles, the library collaborates with authors to create compelling online scholarly identities, share scholarship, and measure impact.
Both faculty and administration have been impressed with the services we provide through SelectedWorks; we’re able to show how much our faculty really publishes, and it’s great for professors to get that recognition. We’ve had several faculty members approach us for help making sure their record was complete when they were up for tenure, and we’ve even found articles that authors themselves no longer had access to.
In the last several months downloads of my scholarship from my [SelectedWorks] site have far surpassed the total distribution of all my work in the previous twenty five years.
A perfect antidote to dowdy and shabby university web pages, bepress SelectedWorks is a shining exemplar of open access publishing: well-presented, modular, and user-friendly.
The new author dashboard maps and enhanced readership are SO GOOD. Every professor up for promotion & tenure should use them!
SelectedWorks is the only faculty profile system that can be integrated with an institutional repository platform: Digital Commons. The suite of Digital Commons and SelectedWorks offers a campus-wide publishing system for capturing the entire scholarly record.
