ORCID at UVA

An ORCID iD is a unique researcher identifier, used worldwide, that you can keep throughout your life and retain even if you move institutions. It distinguishes you from other researchers, even if they have the same name, and enables authoritative links to be created between you and your research activities.

ORCID at UVA Library:

  • When you create or connect your ORCID iD through Libra services, your ORCID iD is validated as belonging to you.
  • When you create or connect your ORCID iD through Libra services, your ORCID iD shows on each work in LibraOpen and LibraETD for which you are an author or co-author.
  • In future versions of LibraOpen and LibraETD, authors who choose to connect an ORCID iD to Libra can opt to have works automatically added to their ORCID profiles.
