Logging in and Getting Started in the Faculty Database System
Go to http://fds.duke.edu/
Click the Login button.

Once you are logged in, you can use the links in the left sidebar, or the links in the text of your welcome page, to view or update your data.
Click the "Webpage" link in the side bar to see your department Web
page. Only the information which your department has chosen to make public
will appear on these pages. You will see "edit" links next to items
on your Web pages which you can click to modify those items. The "Edit" link
next to your name will allow you to edit general information such as contact
info, office hours, and research interests.
Curriculum Vitae View
In the navigation links on the left hand side, under the Webpage link (you
may have to click Webpage to expand it) is a Curriculum Vitae link. Click
this to view your data in CV format. You can add or edit information by clicking
the "edit" or "new" links next to items in your CV. Links
at the top of the page allow you to view a printable version of your CV,
or download a copy as a PDF document.
Click on "Database" in the left sidebar to add or edit the bulk of
your database information. Categories for editing appear directly below the
Database link and include Publications, Degrees, Grants, Teaching, Committees,
etc. Once you have clicked on a Database category, such as Publications, click "View
All" at the top of the page to see all your entered publications, or "New" to
add a new entry.
The Curriculum Vitae and Webpage views of your data are compiled views, meaning that not all of the information entered into FDS will be displayed on these pages. If you have entered information which does not appear where you expected it to, you can always locate it in the appropriate category under "Database". Click on a Database category, such as Publications. Then click "View All," at the top of the page, to see all your entered publications, or "New" to add a new entry.
