Faculty Profiles without Tears: Announcing bepress’s New EGS Harvesting Tool

Libraries are playing a bigger role than ever in promoting faculty expertise—how can the already short-staffed library find time to populate and maintain profiles that showcase the full range of faculty output?

Join us for a free webinar introducing the Expert Gallery Suite’s new harvesting feature, which helps reduce staff time and streamline library projects by automatically harvesting publication metadata from a wide range of disciplines into faculty profiles.

The library can now draw from over 160 million objects using sources such as PubMed, ScienceDirect, Springer, ArXiv, SSRN, IEEE, RePEc, and JSTOR.
