The Office of Academic Affairs maintains the Digital Measures Activity Insight™ license for the entire campus.


Transfer Your eAFRA Past Annual Reports

The eARFA system will only be available until May 9, 2014.

Since Activity Insight and eARFA have different structures for storing data, your past Annual Reports were NOT transferred to the Activity Insight (AI) system. If you need any of your annual Past Reports for Promotion and Tenure or other purposes, you will need to “transfer” those reports from eARFA to AI.

You will need to save your report(s) in eARFA as PDF file(s) and then you will upload the PDF files into the AI program.

Please see the Transfer guide (PDF 107KB) for step-by-step instructions.


Check Publication Citations entered by UNL Libraries

The Libraries staff will work with departments to enter historical publication citations for the faculty members. After the citations are entered individual faculty should review what has been entered into the ActivityInsight database. Please see the instruction guide for checking and correcting citation data (PDF 115KB).
