Introduction to MyInfoVault (for faculty only)

MyInfoVault is the official merit and promotion system for the University of California, Davis.  It is a web-based system and database designed to streamline the academic review process by reducing redundant data entry, allowing remote review of packets, and reusing data for many purposes. This is a very basic, introductory course intended to help faculty get started using the program.  

MyInfoVault is a useful tool to:

•    produce and keep up to date CV’s and NIH Biosketch forms
•    store data related to publications, service, grants/contracts, honors, etc
•    link to PubMed for easy access of publications

Please be sure to bring your UCD Kerberos ID and password to this class.  You will need it to log on to MyInfoVault during this session.
