The automated CTSI data feed (and the UCSF Profiles mini-search feed) are very useful but not necessarily well-known features. The first feature auto-feeds live data from Pubmed publication lists and other UCSF resources into pages hosted on departmental or other UCSF websites. The second links from UCSF pages into UCSF Profiles.
If we haven't already, might we ask UCSF IT leadership to broadcast these free services to a website managers' listserv or other target group? A "top-down" message from leadership to the IT community might help encourage broader use of this free service, with no financial outlay. Katja Reuters has already been very effective and proactive about promoting this feature:
From John Maa's Gen'l Surgery Dept. page: “View All Publications at UCSF Profiles (Powered by CTSI)” - the embedded link towards the middle of the page is a great example of use of, and credit to, the data feed
From UCSF’s Center for AIDS Research (CFAR)
From UCSF’s San Francisco General Hospital
This would add visibility both to profilees and to the CTSI's great resources for investigators. This visibility among both parties would hopefully facilitate further collaboration across the organization.
