UNF Digital Commons and SelectedWorks

What is SelectedWorks?

While the UNF Digital Commons repository is institutionally focused and faculty publications may be uploaded under academic departments, SelectedWorks provides faculty with personal sites to which one may add a CV, areas of interest, and highlight scholarly publications.  A SelectedWorks profile will enhance the discoverability of your projects, presentations, and publications, whether they are deposited in the UNF Digital Commons repository or are available via a link to a third-party site.  A non-exclusive license agreement is required for deposit into the UNF Digital Commons.  A SelectedWorks profile may be as brief or as thorough as you wish.  You may log in to update and edit the site yourself at any time, or submit updates to us.
