Sedona is a self-service web database application that allows members to maintain their teaching, research, service, experience, development, credentials, and assessment records. Based upon a recommendation by a TWU Faculty Senate committee, the Office of Technology provided funding for Sedona in 2012.  To inspire faculty to use the product, a group of graduate students, funded by Provost Neely and overseen by the Office of Technology, entered all of the data from over 400 faculty CVs throughout the summer of 2013.

One of the greatest benefits of Sedona is that your data are centralized and formatted to match TWU standards.  We programmed the default Sedona CV to match these standards.  

In Sedona, you have the ability to query and reformat your CV on demand.  You don’t have to worry about losing entries: Sedona houses all of the data for your CV while you are in control of what appears on your CV at any given time.  You will also be able to upload files associated with your CV entries, making your evaluation processes more streamlined.  And your data are portable: you can download to Word or PDF anytime.

FAQ and Helpful Hints

Title Fields in Sedona - If your titles contain any special characters (including quotation marks, subscript, superscript, italics, scientific symbols, etc.), you can include those in the title field in Sedona.  To do so, you must use html code.  Here is a helpful website for finding the html code.  You can use the character search tool to find your character (such as "quotation" to find the html """).  Then copy the html code into the title field in Sedona.  For quotation marks, be sure to add the code at the beginning and end of the title. 

For example, “Excellent Paper Title” would be entered into Sedona’s title field as &#34Excellent Paper Title&#34

As mentioned in the Content Conventions, you can use <i> </i> around a phrase to create italics. 

Subscript and superscript are a little trickier.  You'll want to search for "subscript x" (or "superscript x") where x is the character you need to be sub- or super-script.  Scroll down until you find the appropriate looking character, click, and copy the html code into the title field in Sedona. 

You can also search for scientific symbols.  If you can't find them using the search function on this site, you might also conduct a web search for html scientific symbols.
