9 Association of Research Libraries Research Library Issues 291 2017 integrating ORCID into library and campus systems. By the end of the year, there were more than 2,000 ORCID iDs associated with Cornell e-mail addresses, as well as a plan in place to include ORCID iDs as public information in Cornell’s identity-provision services. At the time of writing, the latter has been fully implemented.

The team introduced these resources to all interested library staff in the library’s Reference and Outreach forum, and finally, described in a blog post the results of the work as well as the process.10 Library staff report making good use of the resources developed—sharing the library guide with faculty, staff, and students, and using it in teaching and presentations. Usage statistics for the guide show 571 views over the life of the guide, as of March 31, 2017. Staff Feedback on the SCWG Work Model In March of 2017, we distributed a survey to all participants in the two SCWG first-year projects, ORCID@Cornell and author rights outreach. (See Appendix for the survey questionnaire.) We excluded ourselves from the survey, though we all were participants in one or both projects this left nine potential respondents, with no crossover
