An Introduction to Symplectic Elements at CMU Online
Symplectic Elements is the research information management system for CMU provided by the University Libraries. Elements can be used to collect and analyze research output, and can serve as the single ‘research profile’ that you need to keep track of professional activities and publications. This workshop will introduce Symplectic Elements and how users can populate their profiles, turn profiles on for the Scholars at CMU Directory, and learn about the many use cases being implemented across campus.
