Staff, John A. Prior Health Sciences Library and Center for Knowledge Management, Ohio State University for development of OSU:pro to support the data collection, management, and reporting of faculty vitae-based activities. OSU:pro documents expertise, identifies collaborators and benchmarks faculty achievements. This web-based tool culls from various sources to develop a faculty profile of publications, expertise, and achievements, to be used not only by faculty and administration at OSU but also the larger community. During the first six months of 2007, the database was accessed more than 60,000 times. In his letter of support, W. Michael Sherman, Vice Provost for Academic Administration at OSU, stated that OSU:pro was the “embodiment of forward-thinking, people-centric technology that has furthered both knowledge management as a discipline, and the sharing of our collective knowledge.” Staff honored include: Meg Buzzi, Cheryl Brilmyer, Chris Fish, Phoebe Kim, Victoria Cannon, Joshua Logsdon, Timothy Cain, PhD, John Wilkins and Susan Kroll, Director.
