Reminder: Launch of Experts at KU Search Portal
Sent on behalf of Mary Lee Hummert, Vice Provost for Faculty Development
KU’s faculty expertise search portal, Experts at KU, will be publicly announced on May 1. The portal helps internal and external users connect with researchers on the Lawrence and KU Medical Center campuses. Is your scholarly profile up-to-date and reflective of what you want to share with other researchers and members of the public?
This memo you received in March provides details on how to check the portal and make changes to your profile.
Experts at KU is a powerful tool for potential collaborators at external organizations and other universities who want to explore partnerships with KU researchers. The site draws information from the research record (publications, performances, exhibits, etc.) and awards in the Faculty PRO system that the faculty member has selected for display on the web. It also includes records of publications and patents compiled by Academic Analytics from publicly available databases. In addition, Experts at KU includes grant data (from July 2008 to the present) provided by the KU-Lawrence Office of Research and the KUMC Research Institute.
The portal is the result of a collaboration between KU Innovation and Collaboration, Institutional Research and Planning, KU Research, Faculty Development, and Information Technology. Please send your questions and feedback about Experts at KU to expertsatKU@ku.edu.
