Making Changes to your Personnel Information
Members may make changes to their online information using the Andrews Administrative Interface. Use this online tool to update your personnel and biographical profile, your list of current publications, and your studies. Login requires your primary email address (the same one used on the Andrews LTER mailing lists) and your password. If you forgot your password, you can request a new one from the Database Manager. To log into the Andrews Administrative Interface, use the Login button at the top of the Andrews webpages.
Once logged into the Andrews Administrative Interface, there will be a sidebar on the left for Personnel, Studies, and Projects. The 'Update Personnel' link will present the member's personnel profile, which is a tab based system (the tabs are across the top). Member profile information is displayed on the Andrews Forest Members web page. The first tab, called 'Update Contact Info...', displays basic contact information. The second tab, called 'Update Bio Info', includes additional biographical information. The third tab, called 'Associate Key Publications' is how a member can select (and deselect) the publications in the database (Andrews related) that they would like to show up on their member page. In order for the 'Bio Info' to show up on the webpage, the 'Bio Permissions' must be checked. If you have a photo you'd like put up, please send it to Database manager.
Members of the Andrews LTER are included in the online list of personnel on the LTER NETWORK PAGE. Changes to the Network information can be made through the Network website.
Andrews LTER Monthly Meetings
A great way to be involved and stay informed is to attend the Andrews LTER Monthly Meetings. At these meetings, held the first Friday of each month (except during the summer), current events that involve the Andrews are discussed, including important announcements, proposals, publications, funding opportunities, safety issues, and graduate student news and views, to name a few. In many cases, this is your best opportunity to hear about smaller group meetings that may be of interest to you. For more information, view the meeting minutes from the previous Andrews LTER Monthly Meeting.
