For more information about customizing your profile, visit the Selected Works Author Guide.
To personalize your biographical profile:
Affiliating your Selected Works site with the University of Maine will provide your site with the University of Maine branding.
TIP: If you publish under different versions of your name or using multiple email addresses, enter this information in your profile. This will enable the Import Works tool to seek out and automatically collect your works in Digital Commons.
TIP: When choosing your academic discipline (see illustration below), begin typing in the text box. The Selected Works discipline picker will present you with related disciplines available within the pre-set taxonomy. Check the appropriate boxes and click Save.
UMaine faculty and research staff are asked to upload full-text works, authored or created while working at the university, in DigitalCommons@UMaine. Once full-text works are available in Digital Commons, they may be imported to Selected Works using the "Import Works" feature, eliminating the need to duplicate work.
When you log into your Selected Works profile, click on the "Add Work" dropdown menu and select the "Import Works" option (highlighted in yellow in the image below).
In the resulting popup window, check the tic boxes for "Include content from outside your institution's repository" and "Include previously reviewed content."
Carefully scroll through the search results and select each title you wish to import to your Selected Works page. When you've completed your selection process, click the "Import" button. You may repeat this process as often as you need, to confirm that you've collected all your desired publications.
The Expert Gallery Suite includes the UMaine Expert Gallery™, Selected Works scholarly profiles, and individual, author Impact Dashboards. The purpose of the Expert Gallery is to connect faculty with media opportunities, grant funders, and research collaboration opportunities. The gallery also makes it easy to highlight department faculty, grant project participants, and others by allowing the creation of embedded galleries. Information about creating embedded galleries can be found in the Expert Gallery Suite video.
