ORS News Congratulations to the Connell family on the birth of their son, William Lloyd Connell, born on November 15th We welcome Margot Malenfant, Office Assistant (Research), who is replacing Danielle Connell for the next year! Professional Development Services We offer what we refer to in the ORS as “PD” hours. Dozens of faculty in the past year have availed themselves of this service. What professional development does for you is to help you get your writing/academic planning/publishing back on track (if you’re off track) or improved (if you’re on track but feeling overwhelmed). Taking into account all of your academic and personal responsibilities as well as your energy levels, health and well-being, PD hours are a great way to avail yourself of all the ORS has to offer you as a researcher. One hour at a time, we can help you make a difference in your writing/publishing career. Contact Margot Malenfant (margot@stu.ca) today to get started, and to make your first appointment. Your promotion/book/article deserves this specialized attention! Next Connections Issue will Highlight Research at STU We are pleased to announce that the next Connections issue, St. Thomas University’s alumni magazine, to be released in early 2013, will focus on the research activities currently unfolding at STU.

New version of the Canadian Common CV now available The new Canadian Common CV (CCV) application is now available. CCV Data Migration: The majority of data (approximately 90%) has been migrated from the old to the new CCV. You are advised to inspect each section and field of your CV to make sure that your data was properly migrated. Any missing or wrongly formatted data will have to be corrected. Contributions can no longer be attached as a file to the CCV and will have to be entered as structured data. Please allow for some time to capture this information.

You will be able to connect to the new CCV using the same username and password as the previous version. However, when you connect to the new CCV for the first time, you will be asked to capture reminder questions and answers before you can access your CV data.
