    Cultivating ORCIDs on Your Campus: The Who, What, How, and Why of Implementing Open Researcher and Contributor iDs
    (2018-04-04) Chan-Park, Christina; Peterson-Lugo, Billie; Baylor University Libraries
    ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor iD) is a versatile and global ID system that benefits researchers and administrators. Learn more about ORCID and brainstorm how to work with possible partners to implement a program at your institution.

    The Sweet Smell (and Taste) of Success: Incentivizing ORCID ID Sign-Ups Among Faculty and Graduate Students
    Peterson-Lugo, Billie; Chan-Park, Christina Y.; Baylor University.
    ORCID identifiers (ORCID iDs) are a persistent unique identifier for researchers and scholars that enable the automation of links to research objects such as theses, publications, grants, presentations, data, patents and more -- a DOI for researchers and scholars. ORCID iDs also help research offices oversee the research activities of campus scholars. However, in order to reap the benefits of having a unique identifier, most scholars must sign up individually for a free ORCID iD. As ORCID iDs become the de rigueur id, institutions have an increased need for a record of their researchers’ ORCID iDs, and many who have the resources have joined ORCID as institutional members, allowing them both to assign ORCID iDs and to mine information from the ORCID registry. For example, in 2014 personnel at the Texas A&M libraries implemented a system, using the Vireo electronic theses and dissertations software, to mint ORCID iDs for more than 10,000 graduate students. They also assign ORCID iDs to any faculty who request one. ( The Baylor University Libraries do not have the resources to take on the assignment of ORCID iDs at this level. However, we know Baylor researchers are encountering the need to establish ORCID iDs when they submit articles for publication or apply for grants. We also see value in new researchers – especially graduate students – establishing ORCID iDs early in their research careers. Consequently, personnel in the Baylor University Libraries developed a cost-effective, low-tech ORCID iD campaign with input from ORCID. The campaign had two projected outcomes: (1) Raise awareness of ORCID iDs and their benefits with Baylor faculty and graduate students; and (2) Have more than 200 Baylor faculty or graduate students (hoping to reach 300, which would represent 10% of the research population) establish their ORCID iDs. We believe that the concepts and processes we used for our ORCID campaign can be transferred to other institutions that face comparable resource challenges. This poster presentation will cover the processes (and incentives) we used during our Spring 2015 campaign to entice faculty and graduate students to obtain ORCID iDs and to help them add content to their ORCID accounts. In addition, the poster will provide an analysis of the perceived success of this initial campaign for registering researchers with ORCID iDs and discuss adaptations specifically aimed at bringing graduate students into the ORCID fold, reporting on the outcomes of those adaptations.

    Maximizing the Value: Leveraging campus information systems for effective compliance certification and system improvements
    (2006-10-31T16:53:49Z) Logan, Tim; Ames, Eric S.; Gorman, Trey; Stuhr, Darryl
    Preparing an online compliance certification system is a challenge, requiring considerable effort to present university information effectively. Rather than creating a custom online system, Baylor University chose to adapt and integrate existing campus information systems for presenting compliance certification materials in order to speed implementation, take advantage of enterprise system support, and enhance the core university information systems through the work done for SACS reaffirmation. This session will describe and demonstrate the system design specifications, the planning and implementation process, the information systems involved, the resulting compliance certification system, and the improvements made to the existing campus information systems.
