The Iowa State University Library has added SelectedWorks to Digital Repository @ Iowa State University. With SelectedWorks, our faculty and staff have the ability to create author profiles that showcase their research and scholarship.
These SelectedWorks profiles are customizable, giving authors the ability to add an introductory paragraph explaining their research interests; a place to list their areas of expertise, honors and awards and links to relevant Web sites; a head shot or other suitable photo; and the ability to organize publications into custom subject headings. (As you can see in the screenshot, one of my subject heads is “University Institutional Repositories.”)
The addition of SelectedWorks to the repository empowers authors to increase the visibility of their research. To learn more about this new feature, please feel free to contact me at any time.
