Welcome to the online companion to the Online Scholarly Presence Seminar! A professional online presence allows scholars to increase the visibility of their publications and to network, finding potential collaborators and readers. 

This guide will walk you through some of the steps we went through in the seminar so that you can explore them in more detail. You can also find handouts, links, and other guides we talked about in the morning sessions here. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact one or all of the instructors on this page. 

There are three tabs on this guide for three weeks of work you can do to improve your online scholarly presence. The tab will walk you through questions you should ask yourself, research you can do, and extra resources to help you with those steps. Each week's topics are:

Week 1: Examine Your Online Scholarly Presence

Week 2: Upload Content and Claim Your Profiles 

Week 3: Evaluate Your Online Scholarly Presence
