Who I am:

  • Open Scholarship Librarian - Scholarly Communication, Teaching and Learning
  • Masters in Information and Library Science - University of Iowa, Master of Laws - American University, Bachelor of Laws - University of the West Indies, CLE - Norman Manley Law School

What I can help with

Even if you have never created one of these profiles, online services such as Google Scholar may already be tracking and collating your work, and generating metrics as indicators of your scholarly impact. Indiana University Libraries can assist you with research identity management by helping you with three major components:

  • Creating a unique online ID to differentiate you from other researchers
  • Managing your online profile to ensure that your qualifications and research output are accurately reflected
  • Tracking the impact of your work using online tools
  • Connecting you with services of the Scholarly Communication Department - Open Scholarship, Open Data, Open Educational Resources, Open Journals
  • Connecting you with library resources (including books, articles, Open Access materials, research and writing assistance, subject-specific librarians)
