Manage citations: use Endnote to manage citations and create bibliographies.

Enhance research impact: deposit publications in WSU's DigitalCommons; calculate h-index; comply with funding agency polices on public access and data sharing; create unique author identifiers (e.g., ORCID); provide guidance on using ResearchGate and other online researcher profiles.

Provide instruction: give course-integrated lectures, workshops, and orientations; create research guides linked to Blackboard; help with classroom copyright issues.
