Department Member Pages

To make changes to information on the People Pages, you must first determine the “source” of the data. And since the People pages are feeds, you need to make all appropriate changes at the source.

System of record sources

The profiles pull most of their data from external sources such as Scholars@DukeDuke@Work, and theDuke Directory. Note that changes made in these systems of record will not immediately appear on your profile, but should be present within 24 hours.

  • Name: This data is pulled from dFac (Professional Name); contact the departmental dFac user if this needs to be updated.
  • Title: This data is pulled from dFac (Appointment Title); contact the departmental dFac user if this needs to be updated. Changes may need approval by the Dean's office.
  • Location (Office address, Mailing address) and Phone: Each of these can be edited via Duke@Work. Go to Duke@Work, select the "MyInfo" tab and choose "MyProfile" then  "Maintain your Addresses & Phone Numbers" and the "External Mailing Address and Phone" option.
  • Office Hours: The office hours are pulled from the Office Hours noted in your Scholars@Duke profile.

  1. Log in to your site
  2. Go to your People section, select a person, and click “Edit”
  3. The first tab on this page is called “Local Data.” Information within this tab can be changed locally. This includes things such as: “Additional Data” which is used to supplement the Scholar’s Overview; and “Research Themes” to identify a faculty member with a research area.
