Updating Your Directory Information

How to Update Your O-Key and Directory Profile Information

The New Directory System

The directory module and system implemented in the new CVHS website makes it easier than ever to update your public-facing directory information, including your name and work contact information. It also allows you to upload information about your expertise, biography and a link to your vita. You may also upload a headshot as well.

The new CVHS directory sources its information from O-Key, which is where Oklahoma State University’s official public directory already gets its current information. The new system in place on CVHS’s website as well as a unified campus-wide system makes it much easier to maintain the correct information in all of the university’s directories as well as the OSU Expertise Listings ( This system manually updates twice every week to ensure your directory profile is up-to-date.

If you wish to change your O-Key contact information and/or your expertise information, please follow the steps below. Remember to remove any personal information you do not wish to remain viewable by the public.

Step One

On the left menu bar, navigate to “Expertise Information”.

Here you may enter your expertise information, vita URL, and biographical information. You should also upload a professional photo headshot to complete your directory profile.

If you are unable to get your photo to upload correctly due to size restrictions, please send me your request and attach the photo to the website content submission form. I will resize the photo to fit the size constraints and email it back to you to upload.

Click “Upload Expertise” and your new information will be uploaded.
