Finding SPR Author IDs for Many People

If you need the SPR Author IDs for a large number of people, send a list of Unity IDs to group-lib-citations@ncsu.edu, and they can give you the corresponding SPR Author IDs.

ORCID

The Digital Library Initiatives department is encouraging all faculty to register for an ORCID ID and link it to their NCSU Unity ID as an alternative to the SPR Author ID. This will help keep the citations in the SPR current and fill in any gaps. For more information about ORCID and the Citation Index, visit https://ci.lib.ncsu.edu.
