As a faculty member you have a faculty profile that is showcased on the Scholars' Mine Faculty Author Gallery. Your profile can contain information about you, your research and your academic achievements. 

S&T's faculty profiles are now in SelectedWorks. Please see the FAQ below for more information.

The change to SelectedWorks is intended to reduce the amount of profile maintenance for faculty. Until now, faculty members have had two distinct faculty profiles offering largely the same input fields. Since not all faculty members updated both, S&T had multiple listings of faculty information with different data in each.

Since many faculty members also maintain profiles on their departments' websites, the level of profile maintenance being asked of faculty was deemed excessive.

By consolidating profiles to SelectedWorks, faculty now have only one main profile to update, and all profiles are searchable in one listing.

SelectedWorks is a product by Elsevier's bepress/Digital Commons® division. It allows faculty to have portable profiles that they own and can keep throughout their careers. A SelectedWorks profile can be moved to any institution.

Profiles can now be seamlessly linked back and forth with research labs, new publications can be automatically populated as they're catalogued by the library, and new features are available such as specifying media contacts and masking contact information by default to deter contact harvesting and spamming.

SelectedWorks is also easier to edit and updates information immediately instead of requiring several hours or days to change profile information.

Yes. All data was exported from the Faculty Profile Editor and merged into the appropriate SelectedWorks profiles.

If there was no data in your SelectedWorks profile, then your Faculty Profile Editor data should now be present in your SelectedWorks profile.

If there was already data in your SelectedWorks profile, this took priority over the data from the Faculty Profile Editor, as in most cases the SelectedWorks profiles contained more content and were more up-to-date. If there was a part of your Faculty Profile Editor profile that you liked better than what you have in SelectedWorks (e.g. a more recent bio, or a more thorough education history), please contact websupport@mst.edu. Staff will manually examine both profiles and merge them in any way you specify.

You can also retrieve the data from your old faculty profile if you would like to compare.

Since SelectedWorks is a separate service maintained by BePress for many institutions, it does not take your university Single Sign-On credentials. Instead, a new account with a random password was created under your email address when your profile was created. To access your profile for the first time, you'll need to reset your password.

Please do not use the same password you use for university SSO. Passwords should be unique per service. Please see IT's Safe Computing article on password security for more info.

The Faculty Profile editor is still available for retrieval of old profiles, though it is no longer linked to from S&T's directory page. If you need to retrieve data from your profile, you can log in here.
