Your Profiles

What is a profile?

Everyone in the R.H.Smith address book has a BMGT profile document, whether currently enrolled or an alumni.  AND every employee or student of umd.edu also has a campus UMID profile.  These profiles should include your most up-to-date contact information.  This data will be used as a reference, not only for forwarding emails to you, but also to capture other pertinent statistics for the School such as degree program and concentration, current employment information, etc. You can choose to make  information "Public" or "Private" such as home address, work information. 

Please maintain correct location and contact information for yourself in your TWO campus profiles:  BMGT and UMID

For information on changing your UM Active Directory or Lotus Notes passwords, please visit our Password Change page.

BMGT Address Book Profiles

To access a complete listing of Smith Faculty, Staff and Students, you can access the BMGT Address book through the Lotus Notes Client or from the BMGT Address book on the web.

Everyone with a Notes account has a profile located in the BMGT Address Book. Whether you use the Notes email or not (no, you don't have to use Notes to get @rhsmith email - see "using other eMail clients"), it is important to keep your information up-to-date so that other faculty, staff and students can locate your office, phone number, or email address.  Only you can keep this profile up to date.  If you're setting it for the first time, or if your address or contact information changes, just open your personal entry in the BMGT address book, click the edit button, and change that information. For a way to do this over the web, please go to update your profile.

Profiles for currently enrolled students are located in the BMGT Address Book. Profiles for Alumni are located in the Alumni Address Book.
