ORCID is an identification tool that distinguishes scholars from one another (regardless of name variants). Unlike other research IDs, your ORCID ID is universal. It is not tied to any institution or database and it can follow you wherever your research takes you. ORCID ensures that your work is recognized by connecting you to your professional and scholarly activities. You can keep your ORCID with you throughout your career, even when you graduate or change jobs. It eliminates scholars’ need to enter the same data and information in different systems.
In honor of National Orchid Day on April 16, the Health Sciences & Human Services Library is encouraging current and future researchers to distinguish themselves with a very different kind of ORCID. To register for an ORCID iD, look for our pop-up table at your school during the week of April 16, or register yourself at https://orcid.org/. When you visit our table, submit your ORCID to participate in a drawing for $25.00 Amazon gift cards.
Also remember to add UMB as your employer or educational institution in your ORCID profile!
