An Introduction to Symplectic Elements at CMU Online

Symplectic Elements is a research information management system provided by the University Libraries, and is being rolled out campus-wide during the 2020-2021 Academci Year. It can be used to serve as the single ‘research profile’ that you need to keep track of professional activities and publications, to collect and analyze research output, complete Faculty Annual Reviews, as well as numerous other uses . This workshop will introduce Symplectic Elements with added support from the University Libraries Elements Support Team.
