The UNLV University Libraries is now publishing the UNLV Bibliography, a showcase and record of the scholarly and creative output of UNLV researchers. This project will preserve, increase discoverability, and provide additional access to UNLV research while enhancing the visibility of UNLV faculty and increasing the impact of their work.
The project launched in 2015 with a list of entries covering works published in that year. The University Libraries will continue to update the UNLV Bibliography to build a comprehensive and current bibliography reflecting the full scope of research and creative activities at the university.
The UNLV Bibliography is published in Digital Scholarship@UNLV, our university institutional repository. Entries come from three sources: works listed by faculty in UNLV Folio as publications or intellectual contributions, works obtained from citation databases, and those added at the request of individual faculty members or academic units. Once faculty works are added to the UNLV Bibliography, they are notified via email.
When Digital Measures was replaced with UNLV Folio in 2019, citations began to be pulled from the “Scholarly and Creative Work” section in your UNLV Folio account. The administrator for UNLV Folio supplies the Libraries with a publication list of current UNLV faculty each year. The UNLV Bibliography only includes contributions with a current status of "published." Contributions with the status of "in preparation", "submitted", "revising to resubmit", "not accepted" or "accepted" are not included.
Beginning in 2017, the University Libraries have also begun obtaining citations from citation databases such as Scopus and Web of Science, Dimensions, and others. These additional sources will allow the Libraries to continually post faculty scholarship throughout the year, moving towards our goal of creating a comprehensive and current bibliography that showcases the full scope of research and creative activities at UNLV.
UNLV Folio (also known as Faculty 180) is a secure and web-based information management system. It provides a database and reporting tool for faculty to document their scholarly achievements, along with workflows for university administrators to assist with annual evaluations and tenure and promotion reviews.
UNLV Folio is the preferred method of faculty activity reporting at UNLV. The university adopted this system in 2019 to reduce the time that faculty spend on reporting their activities, and to increase the accuracy and consistency of their data. You can access resources to learn more about Folio, review training materials, and obtain support by logging in at the link provided below.
For the 2015 and 2016 Bibliographies, faculty were contacted via email once the entire Bibliography collection was published. Beginning with the 2017 Bibliography, faculty will start to receive emails from the University Libraries as their citations are included in the collection. The UNLV Bibliography will continue to be organized into annual collections and records are still included in your department's collection, so if you are in the Anthropology department, your works will appear in the Anthropology collection as well as in that year's Bibliography. These emails are sent out each month by Scholarly Communication Initiatives.
Of course, we would still appreciate having the full-text of your scholarship to pair with the listing of your work. For more information about adding your full-text works to records in the UNLV Bibliography, visit the "How Can I Submit Full-Text Works" section of the Participating in Digital Scholarship@UNLV page of this guide.
