Managing Your Online Scholarly and Professional Presence

A very brief guide to creating and maintaining your professional identity online


Actively managing your online scholarly and professional presence allows you to curate your own web identity rather than have it haphazardly created for you. In this guide you will find tools to help you create your identity, make your scholarship more discoverable, and network with other scholars and researchers in your field. 

The guide has been created to support the Managing Your Online Scholarly and Professional Presence conversation. It is a starting point focused on resources particularly relevant to the Southwestern University community. There are many other excellent guides on the topic of curating your web presence, several of which you can find listed on this guide's Learn More tab. Thanks in particular to wonderful librarians at the University of New Mexico whose guide provided the template and much of the content for this guide.
