Upcoming SelectedWorks Transition

SelectedWorks, the platform that hosts faculty profiles, is being discontinued by the publisher effective July 2024.

What that means for UW Tacoma faculty and staff:

  • We will no longer create new profiles or update existing profiles beginning in Fall 2023.
  • Faculty and staff who wish to maintain profiles will need to create new accounts on a different platform (e.g. ORCID, Google Scholar, their UWT Directory page, etc). 
  • Existing profiles will no longer be accessible as of July 2024.

The Library is here to help faculty and staff make this transition a smooth one with the following resources and services:

  • Attend our in-person faculty workshop exploring available platforms on Wednesday, November 15, 12:30-1:20pm in TLB 115 (session will be recorded for later viewing).
  • Check out this guide, with new pages in development covering available platforms and an FAQ.
  • Schedule an individual consultation with your subject librarian to discuss the best options for you.

More information and reminders will be shared throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact
