Why Selected Works?
SelectedWorks allows you to promote your scholarship to a global audience. It makes your work discoverable by content aggregators and library catalogs. In addition, pages are optimized for discovery which means that your page will rank higher than a personal web site in Google and other search engines.
Can Selected Works be customized?
J B Coleman Library can customize Selected Works sites in several ways. Typical options include: Your photo, an introductory paragraph (brief bio. or personal information), your CV, contact information, honors and awards, areas of expertise, courses taught and links to additional resources.
The library recommends that you have a picture, your CV and your contact information as a minimum. Please note that layout and design are not customizable, only content.
Statistics provided by Selected Works
Once there is content available on your site you will receive monthly download reports. In addition, the library can run a custom report for you.
What happens if I leave PVAMU?
You can keep your Selected Works site up and available when you leave an institution because all content posted is perpetually available. If your new institution also has a Selected Works account, then you can change your current Selected Works account to reflect the look and feel of your new institution.
