Faculty and staff may wish to create a web page to share information about their scholarship, research, or teaching. If you’d like to create a website, you can do so easily using Bucknell’s WordPress instance or Google Sites. You can also use Moodle for a course page.

If you want to create a searchable professional profile of your publications, you might consider creating a Selected Works Profile page as part of Bucknell’s Digital Commons Institutional Repository. In the Links section on the left-hand side of that page, you can click on Create a SelectedWorks Page to create an account with bepress. Once you have created the account, you can add your profile (and publications) to our digital repository.

NOTE: Official pages, such as Bucknell University’s home page or a departmental pages, such as Biology, are created and maintained by Communications. Please contact Communications if you have questions about an official website for the university or a department.


We strongly encourage faculty members to use our WordPress instance to create professional Web pages. If you choose to be part of the “Bucknell Scholar” domain, your Web site will have a URL that ends with “.scholar.bucknell.edu,” as in “http://johnjsmith.scholar.bucknell.edu” (for example). To begin creating your WordPress site, navigate to http://www.blogs.bucknell.edu/, and click the “Login” button on the right side of the page.

For assistance go to Bucknell Blogs Help.
