Northwestern Scholars fills a huge gap for our undergraduate population. As coordinator of university-wide grant programs, I am approached regularly by students interested in getting involved in research. Two key stumbling blocks exist. First, they don't know who on the faculty deals with their topic, and second, they don't know the relevant literature associated with it. Northwestern Scholars has solved both issues. Now, I can meet with students and through Northwestern Scholars identify the core faculty they need to contact as well as sending them off with a big pile of articles printed from the site as well. There was no effective and efficient way to do this work previously. They had to search web sites (of which there are many) and/or do Google searches (with each one coming up with 200,000+hits). Students are fascinated by the ability to learn about their professors not just as teachers, but as researchers as well. Northwestern Scholars is a remarkable tool that has directly impacted my work in an incredibly positive way in a very short period of time.

Wow, this thing is totally amazing! I'm excited for it to get fully up to speed (capturing more journals, etc.). It's a remarkable piece of software...

Given I provided no direct input and you used secondary sources, this information was surprisingly accurate! Thanks!

We are eager to fully take advantage of NU Scholars in the service of our efforts to create this "NU Based early developmental science community". This seems like a great opportunity to build in this integration from the ground up!
