Guides & Training

Training available to all users

New to Works? Need a refresher? Works training sessions are designed for all users and skill levels. Sessions can be tailored to focus on key areas for you or your group, to include importing publications, reviewing and updating imported data, and running useful reports.

Open training sessions are offered throughout the year. These group training sessions focus on importing publications, reviewing and managing imported data (grants, teaching, and advising), and manual data entry in Works. Training sessions are scheduled for 2 hours to provide extra time for questions. If registering for a virtual event, webinar information will be sent to your email address prior to the event.

All training sessions will now be held via Zoom. We are happy to accommodate everything from one-on-one sessions to trainings for groups or entire departments. Please contact [email protected] to request a training.
