Session Title

Adding Flair to Faculty Pages

Description

Google a faculty members’ name, what kind of results are listed? On how many pages? What if faculty webpages linked to a variety of information for easier access to: publications and scholarship, professional networking, and college or university social media links? This would better connect the many online places faculty information is located; while at the same time, provide current content on fairly static faculty pages.

The University of Nebraska College of Law and Schmid Law Library are using buttons or “flair” on faculty pages to do just this. Buttons provide a quick visual and link to publications in SSRN and the UNL Digital Commons. We’ve also created buttons for LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Slideshare; and are working on a better way to link to online CVs. This project has built better relationships between law college communications department and library, the faculty and librarians and Schmid Law Library and the UNL Digital Commons.

This presentation will discuss the background of the project, how the librarians came to be involved, and promoting library services such as Digital Commons to faculty with the goal of adding flair to faculty pages.
