Abstract

As every profile administrator knows, CVs are amorphous documents. Updates can occur anywhere at any time as researchers’ statuses, institutional roles, and research agendas evolve. Sections and entries can appear and disappear fluidly over the life of a CV, and even details within a single entry can change over time. For the profile administrator, catching these updates efficiently and effectively can be a real challenge. This presentation details one university’s approach to using Adobe Acrobat’s document comparison tools to identify, track, and process updates that improves significantly on manual review techniques. Presenters provide a detailed overview of this process, including a live demonstration of Acrobat’s document comparison tools. Pros and cons of the process are considered, including workflow efficiencies.
