My CV System Training - INVITATION ONLY

 

This training is focused on a new faculty-focused software system that is being implemented at Boston University – My CV. My CV is a tool that collects your faculty’s scholarly and professional contributions and stores all of the scholarly information in one place. In addition, it will be replacing the Faculty Annual Report (FAR) on the Charles River Campus starting next year. This session will provide an overview of the My CV Project and provide you with a guided tour of the key functionality of the system. The session will be hands-on in a computer lab.
