ORCID Week is Coming to UMB on April 16

In honor of National Orchid Day (April 16), the Health Sciences and Human Services Library is encouraging current and future researchers to distinguish themselves with a very different kind of ORCID.

An ORCID is a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and 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.

To register for an ORCID, look for our pop-up table at the UMB schools during the week of April 16 or register yourself at this link. You can enter a drawing for $25 Amazon gift cards by signing up for or submitting your ORCID at one of our pop-up tables.

Look for our table in these locations to learn more about ORCID and register:

  • School of Dentistry (first floor) – Monday, April 16, noon-2 p.m.
  • School of Social Work (third floor west) – Tuesday, April 17, noon-2 p.m.
  • School of Medicine (HSF I near the second-floor elevators)– Wednesday, April 18, noon-2 p.m.
  • School of Nursing (first-floor lobby) – Thursday, April 19, noon-2 p.m.
