Research Repository and Digital Scholarship Services


The Library will add works to ScholarWorks@UMBC for you. If faculty have previously sent a list of publications, or link to a list of publications, they do not need to do anything. Each year, library staff will automatically add new works, contacting faculty for anything as need.

If the library has not yet gone through a faculty member’s works, please send Michelle Flinchbaugh any of the following:

  • A list of published works (including works previous to working at UMBC). They accept links to a publications website, a public Google Scholar page, a CV, or just paste a list into an email.
  • Unpublished works with the files attached. These can be reports, lab notes, data, presentation slides, posters, etc.
  • Links to free articles or papers about research, current work, grants, awards, department, program, lab, or center or about UMBC.
  • The name and email address of students who have submitted outstanding papers or projects for any classes, and library staff will include the student’s work in ScholarWorks@UMBC. Include the name and number of the course and the name of the assignment.

Save Time! There are a bunch of fast and easy ways to quickly load lots of works’ citations into ORCID then into Digital Measures. Many publishers and professional organizations can also automatically load materials into ORCID if given permission. ORCID is a type of author identifier, so be sure to use the preferred author’s name to use on publications and indicate the University of Maryland, Baltimore County as the employer. For more information on ORCID or instructions on how to set up your ORCID, see
