myElements - An Overview

This article highlights the basics of myElements which include what it is, where and how to log in, and how to get help. It also includes a quick start guide on using the application and links to more detailed instructions.

What is myElements?

myElements is a research information system. It automatically collects information related to research and scholarship using open data sources and licensed library databases. myElements also connects to other UNH systems to collect personnel, grants, and teaching information.  myElements is the replacement to the Digital Measures Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) system. These tools are meant to store data that you can use to generate the assessment report. They are not, however, capable of storing the reports themselves.
