Faculty: How to Upload your CV to SelectedWorks

Every faculty member should have a "SelectedWorks" home page.
 
 
Search for your name in the prominent, central search box. Click on your name in the abbreviated profile that you should find in your search results. This will take you to your SelectedWorks page. (SelectedWorks pages have navy borders all around and should have University of Akron branding in the upper left corner.)  If you cannot find your SelectedWorks page in the search results, email Jon Miller at mjon@uakron.edu and request the creation of a SelectedWorks page. 
 
Once you find your SelectedWorks page, select "Login" from the menu in the upper right. Your SelectedWorks page is associated with your UA email account. You must use your UA email address to log in and edit your page.
 
If you have never logged into your SelectedWorks page, use the "Forgot your password?" link to reset the password. A reset password link should arrive quickly. Follow the directions and create a new password for your SelectedWorks page. It does not have to be the same as your UAnet password; this is an independent system. If you receive an error message indicating that your account is not yet activated, email Jon Miller at mjon@uakron.edu and report this.
 
There may be content on your SelectedWorks page that you did not add. If so, it was taken from your department's website by the student assistants who created your page. Regardless, you are now free to edit this page as much as you like.
 
To upload your CV, look in the "About" tab for the second item, "Curriculum Vitae." If you hover your mouse on this section, boxes will appear to let you to upload, remove, or replace a file. Upload your CV here. You do not need to create a new CV for your SelectedWorks page; simply update and upload whatever CV you use for communicating your accomplishments to your department and others in your discipline. It is best if you save and upload your CV file as a PDF file, as PDF is the only file format that will display the same on all screens and platforms.
