The University Libraries are leading an initiative with two important objectives:

  • To help CMU researchers acquire an ORCID ID if they don't already have one.
  • To link CMU researcher ORCID IDs with their Andrew IDs in Carnegie Mellon's identity management system.

A pilot project was completed Fall semester 2014 for faculty and staff researchers in CIT.  The ORCID Initiative @ CMU is now open to all CMU researchers.  To participate, go to and follow the brief instructions.  Participation takes only a few minutes.
