This month features the author profiles of all of the assistant professors in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (SIAS), a group whose research interests encompass a wide range of disciplines and topics. In each of the profiles below, you will find a list of all available publications by the respective authors, including links to the full-text versions whenever possible.
To create these full and up-to-date SelectedWorks author profiles, a small team of library staff worked closely with Turan Kayaoglu and the SIAS Assistant Professor peer-mentoring group during Spring Quarter 2016. Each faculty member received a publication report outlining which publications could be made available full-text on his or her SelectedWorks site, along with instructions on how to upload the articles. Then during the May 2016 peer-mentoring meeting, I offered a training in how to log into and edit the profile.
This was the first time that the UW Tacoma Library Digital Commons team completed author profiles for a large group of faculty. We look forward to applying what we learned as we branch out to other departments and units on campus. I would like to thank Dr. Kayaoglu and the SIAS assistant professors peer-mentoring group for being our test group on this project. Also, special thanks to the library staff who put extra effort into making this possible: Katrina Gertz, Megan Saunders, and Angie Wiehagen.
