New WebCV Terms of Use

 
Dear Faculty Members and Staff:
 
This is to inform you that a new WebCV Terms of Use (TOU) has been activated as of Friday March 14, 2014. The new TOU has been updated to align with the Protocol for WebCV Data Access and Use (the Protocol) and approved by the Dean on February 26, 2014. A primary purpose of the Protocol is to ensure that privacy is protected and that personal information is treated in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The first time a faculty member logs in to their WebCV account after the new TOU has been activated, it will appear for them to read, along with the "Agree" button. Please note that those with Member Secretary accounts will not be able to view their faculty member's WebCV data until the faculty member has logged in and clicked this button.

CCV Translator - Publication Modifications

 
Dear WebCV Users:

In August 2013, the Faculty of Medicine’s WebCV Team released the Common CV (CCV) Translator in an effort to enhance the interoperability between WebCV and CCV. The CCV Translator provides the ability to transfer existing and new records you create in WebCV over to CCV for many different record types (e.g. publications, presentations, grants, research supervision), minimizing the effort required to keep your records up to date.

The use of the Translator requires some modification to your existing WebCV publication records that may have been entered prior to May 2013.  Recognizing that these modifications are potentially time-consuming, the WebCV Team is offering to undertake these modifications on your behalf on a best efforts basis for a limited time.

These modifications will not change the content of the records in any way and will not affect the way they print on WebCV generated reports.  *These modifications are only necessary if you intend to use the CCV Translator.*

PLEASE NOTE: If your WebCV account was created after May of 2013, then your WebCV publication records do not need to be altered.

As always, if you would like to use the CCV Translator for the best results we recommend you contact the WebCV Team so they can support you through your initial use of the Translator.  To provide the best service possible, we encourage you to contact us at least two weeks prior to the competition to which you are looking to apply.

Regards,
The WebCV Team

Recommended Browsers

For optimal WebCV experience, we recommend using Mozilla Firefox as your web browser. We have found that Firefox provides the fastest WebCV performance of any browser currently available. It is completely free and compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. Please visit the Firefox homepage to get started. Google Chrome currently works with WebCV, although it is not an officially supported browser by our software provider.

Please note: Since Internet Explorer versions 9-11 are not fully compatible with WebCV, your browser will not work properly unless you turn on "Compatibility View". Please click here for instructions on how to do this. Previous versions of Internet Explorer (6 to 8) work fine with WebCV.
