What is Works?

sample of works login for facultyWorks is an online faculty activity reporting system designed to make it easier for faculty to maintain and complete an accurate record of ongoing activities and accomplishments (teaching, research, service, public and international engagement) that can be used to produce faculty activity reports as well as bio-sketches, accreditation reports, web site bios, and standardized University promotion and tenure CVs.

Works is a web-based system that runs on Digital Measures’ Activity Insight platform. Works represents the University’s customized implementation of this system.

    How does Works benefit users?

    Works allows users to enter activity information once and use it for multiple purposes. For example, a user would enter a conference presentation only once and that information can be included in different types of reports such as a CV, annual activity report, accreditation report, bio sketch, or department web site bio. Users can enter information throughout the year and decide what information they wish to share.

    To reduce the amount of manual entry, much of the information in Works will be pulled from central databases. For example, official data about advising and scheduled teaching will be entered into Works automatically. Faculty will also be able to import their publications from other databases, including:

    • Experts@Minnesota
    • Google Scholar
    • PubMed
    • Other Citation Managers
