Background

MyInfoVault, also known as MIV, is an online system that houses academic personnel research, creative activity, teaching and service data, and creates and routes electronic dossiers for academic peer review. The program is sponsored by Academic Affairs with technical assistance from Information and Educational Technology (IET).  MIV currently has approximately 3,840 academic accounts and 620 administrative accounts from all schools and colleges on the Davis campus.

MIV Oversight Committee and MIV Users Group

The role of the MIV Oversight Committee and MIV Users Group, as enhancements are approved and incorporated into MIV, is to help inform the nature, timing, and implementation of additional functionality. This advice is essential to realize the full potential of MIV as the campus academic personnel review system.

Your MIV Team

MIV is supported by a team of functional and technical staff members. In Academic Affairs, Kelly Anders is the functional team leader, and Michelle Howard provides training for MIV users; both provide help desk support. From Information and Educational Technology, Brent Hammond is the technical team leader, and oversees the work done by the rest of the IET staff (Stephen Paulsen, Rick Hendricks, Mary Northup, Jacob Saporito, and Marc Dellerba). Together, they are responsible for keeping the project on track, including programming and testing the new code, informing the campus of ongoing activities that will affect the use of the program, and responding to requests for assistance. To contact the team with problems or suggestions for improvement, e-mail us at miv-help@ucdavis.edu.

Other Uses for MIV

Besides being a repository for academic data on research and creative activities, teaching and service, MIV has several output features. First and foremost, MIV is used to prepare and route a variety of academic actions (Senate and Federation) through the review process, including both redelegated and non-redelegated actions. The program can now also create new appointments for individuals being recruited from outside the Davis campus.  MIV also has functionality to create a curriculum vitae and an NIH biographical sketch. Each of these outputs is saved as a Rich Text File (RTF), which allows the document to be edited once it is saved.
