The Online Directory
The Rutgers Online Directory is a central directory listing faculty, staff, and students at Rutgers University. It is intended to act as an online telephone directory and email directory.
Most of the information comes from official administrative data. All full-time faculty and staff should be listed. However, in a few cases where faculty and staff are not paid by Rutgers in the usual way, they are not listed. Almost all registered students are listed. However, it is possible for a student to request either their entire entry or individual items to be omitted from display.
Students have the option of hiding all or part of their information displayed on Rutgers Online Directory by accessing Student Online Directory Management page. If the Student Online Directory Management page is not accessed after a grace period of 2 weeks into the semester, then all information will be displayed on the Rutgers Online Directory.
If a student is continuing (i.e. not new this year), whatever settings were in effect in the past for that student will continue unless changed by the student using the online update form available from the main Finding People screen or by accessing Student Online Directory Management page.
Using the Online Directory
The easiest way to look someone up in the directory is by going to the online directory search screen.
Search tips are available at the Directory homepage.
If you are logged into a Unix system at Rutgers, you can also look up information in the online directory using the program "wpwhois".
Making Changes to Data
Because the directory is built from administrative data, most changes are done using University administrative procedures.
For faculty and staff, changes are made using the ADR (Address Change Record) form. The most convenient approach is to use the online ADR form. This form only works if you have an account on one of the OIT central academic systems: rci, andromeda, or crab. Alternatively, your departmental secretary or administrator should be able to send in the paper version of the ADR form for you.
Student information that is not on that form should be changed through the Registrar:
Camden (856) 225-6053
Email addresses are handled in a special way. If you create an account on any of the major OIT computer systems, the directory will automatically set up your email address.
If you want to change your email address (or if the automatic procedure didn't work for you), you may use the normal change procedures. That is, faculty and staff can use the ADR procedure, either manual or the online ADR. Students can change their email address using the online form, which is available from the opening screen of the online directory.
