UNLV Libraries' ORCID Day

Apr. 16, 2018


UNLV Libraries' ORCID Day- Wednesday, April 18th!!

What is ORCID?
-The Open Researcher and Contributor ID registry
-A free, persistent, unique number which identifies you as a researcher
-An ID that travels with you throughout your career no matter where you work

Why sign up for an ORCID ID?
-Distinguish yourself and ensure your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you
-Improve recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs
-It works with many publishers, funders, and institutions
-It can connect with other systems so you don’t need to re-input data for your creative and research outputs
Check out the signup tables in Lied Library on the second floor outside the Graduate Commons (10am) and the Science and Engineering Building lobby (12pm) to find out more information, get an ORCID iD, or enter our contest. Just look for the balloons!

Or come by the certification workshop (2pm, Pioche Room, Lied Library First Floor) to learn how to get the most out of your ORCID iD!
