Faculty Resources in Digital Measures
It’s best to update your information in DM throughout the year. When you write a paper for publication, take a moment to create a record for that paper. If you submit a grant proposal, create a DM record. Committee service, academic advising, faculty development activities – enter them in DM as they happen so that your information is always up-to-date.
Once you enter information related to your academic career in DM, that information becomes accessible for a variety of purposes: your Bluebook vita, your annual report, a customized vita for tenure and other reviews, and any Ad Hoc Reports your department or college may wish to generate in Digital Measures.
Tools and help are available to you as you navigate DM.
