BURO and Academic Staff Pages to become read-only

The new publications management system, BRIAN, will be available from 22 June.  In order to migrate current data into BRIAN (Bournemouth Research, Information & Networking), the BURO and Academic Staff Pages will only be available in read-only mode from Monday, 28th May 2012.  Staff will be able to modify their profile using BRIAN from the 22 June.

I would advise you to stop inputting any further information into BURO from today, which will enable the BURO team within the Library to complete any outstanding actions.  From the 22 June staff will be able to use BRIAN to manage their BURO records.

You can update your Academic Staff Pages up until Sunday, 27th May 2012.  This information will migrate across to BRIAN and so any amendments made this week will be imported into the new system.

For those who have never heard of BRIAN – watch this space for a series of articles on the BU Research Blog and staff portal over the coming weeks.  We recently published details  link on a series of demonstrations for staff about the new system.  If you have any concerns or queries then please contact Jo Garrad in the Research Development Unit who is coordinating the BRIAN launch.  

I appreciate your cooperation over the next few weeks while we make the necessary transition.

Best wishes
