CityU Scholars - Training Workshops (via Zoom) 

CityU Scholars is the University’s Integrated Research Information System for faculty members and research students to showcase their research output and achievement to the global audience through the public researcher profiles. Records collected in CityU Scholars will also be used by the University for reporting (e.g. the annual submission of research output to the RGC) and appraisal (e.g. the annual performance review) purposes. It is therefore important that our researchers learn how to manage their CityU Scholars accounts.

The Library is pleased to host the following training workshops on CityU Scholars. New faculty members and research students*, newly appointed Departmental Administrators, Trusted Users or any interested parties are welcome to attend.

* Students' workshop attendance will be recorded in Central Repository on Student Development Activities (CRESDA).
