ORCID Flash Session

October 4 | 10-10:30 a.m.
John M. Olin Library
Room 142

Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier (ORCID) provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and supports automated links between you and your professional activities. The NIH recently announced that ORCID IDs will soon be required for many grants offered by the NIH, AHRQ, and CDC.

This Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier (ORCID) Flash Session is designed to help attendees:

  1. Understand what ORCID is and how it can benefit them
  2. Create their own ORCID ID and know how to populate data in their record
  3. Recognize the benefits of authorizing organizations as trusted parties

Hosted in conjunction with Becker Medical Library and their “Open October” series of events. Coffee and pastries will be served.
