OpenScholar is an open source application developed at Harvard which gives each faculty member complete control over their Purchase-affiliated academic online presence. It is a much better alternative to the existing static faculty web pages, which faculty currently have no control over. Using OpenScholar, you will be able to easily create and manage your dynamic professional website without the need for any special technical skills; it’s as easy to use as a word processing program. Faculty will no longer have to wait for updates to be made to their faculty webpage, as you will be given full control over your website.
You can watch a video about OpenScholar and its many features here: http://openscholar.harvard.edu/home.
If you are interested in setting up an OpenScholar site, please check out our OpenScholar Essentials: Getting Started Guide. You can also send an email to TLTC@purchase.edu to make an appointment with us.
You can also use this form to submit a chat question. Try that if you're waiting too long.
This service is staffed by librarians from New York State, as well as other parts of the country. You will not necessarily be chatting with a librarian from Purchase College.
