“Researcher Identity Management” by Anna Craft, Coordinator of Metadata Services
This session will cover some of the tools available to help manage your online research identity, such as researcher profiles and IDs available through ORCID, Google Scholar Citations, Scopus Author ID, Web of Science Researcher ID, and UNCG’s NC DOCKS repository.
These tools can help you: track citations and other usage metrics related to your publications; make sure your scholarship is attributed to you (and not someone of a similar name) in academic search systems; make your research visible to other scholars, potential readers, collaborators, funders and others.

“Managing Archival Research Photographs with Tropy” by Maggie Murphy, Humanities Librarian
Researchers who work in archives often photograph or scan materials for later use, but may not have a way to systematically organize and describe their research photographs for retrieval and use later. Tropy is a free, open-source desktop knowledge organization platform developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University that allows researchers to easy organize, annotate, tag, group, search and export research photographs. This webinar will demonstrate how to install and use Tropy for archival research.
