Faculty and Doctoral student profiles are built to allow UNT faculty and doctoral students to create an individual web page. Aside from the Core Sections/Data Elements and or Subsections there are data elements that would be necessary for the automatic generation of Biosketches and CV's.
These Profiles also give an option to include descriptive links to labs or other group web pages along with keywords eliminating the need to create separate profiles for them if not required and yet making them searchable.

Sample Faculty Profile

Here is a sample faculty profile. The core sections for a faculty profile are presented by default. New Section can be customized and added by using the Toolbox.

Basic Details like Mailing address, Office Location, Various Descriptive URL's etc can be maintained here. Keywords are an important aspect of the profile. The Keywords constitute the meta tags that enables your profile to be searched by external search engines.
