The Alliance facilitated an information sharing meeting on 9/29/2016 covering Faculty Profile initiatives and systems and what our member institutions have implemented or are exploring in this regard. We will continue to compile information from our institutions as we receive updates. This information is shared on a new webpage: https://www.coalliance.org/faculty-profile-systems
The Alliance has setup a new listserv for the Gold Rush Library Content Comparison System to disseminate information such as new enhancements, updates, features, documentation, bugs, etc. to those using the system. You can also use the list to post questions about the tool, provide suggestions or other types of discussion related to the tool.
