Vita Unavailable December 4 - 8 for Planned Maintenance

The Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE) will be performing necessary maintenance on Vita from 9 a.m. on December 4 to 11:59 p.m. on December 8. The system will be unavailable during this maintenance window while the software updates and the databases refresh.

During this maintenance window, ODEE is also adding new features that will help faculty and staff create their professional dossier. Beginning Saturday, December 9, users will be presented with new interfaces that will make it easier to add supporting details to accompany their publications and help ensure that their dossier is complete.

It will now be easier for faculty and staff to provide a description of effort, percent authorship, citation counts and more. Users will be required to select which source (SCOPUS, PubMed, manual, etc.) they prefer to use for each publication. Before viewing their dossier, users will be alerted if any publications do not have a preferred source.

More information about the new user experience will be made available at the Vita Resource Center.
