Updates to Find a Person Coming Soon

Information Services and Technology (IST) has been working to build the next iteration of Find a Person, the university’s directory, to serve you better! As part of an enhancement to the application, staff now have the ability to edit and update their personal directory listing.

The new staff directory became available November 29, 2017.

For more information, refer to the FAQs below.


What is Find a Person?
Find a Person is the university’s staff directory. If you need to find contact information for staff on campus, you can use Find a Person to look up phone numbers, email addresses and more.

Are there any new features in Find a Person?
Yes. The latest release of Find a Person will have updated visuals and allow all staff to edit and update their personal directory listing. If you need to edit details on your contact card you can do so without contacting your departmental contact. We currently do not have a mechanism for students to opt-in to the directory.

Where do I edit/update my directory listing?
To edit/update your directory listing, search for your contact card through https://directory.ualberta.ca. Next, navigate to ‘Staff Login’ at the bottom of the webpage. Once signed in you will be directed to your contact card. Select the ‘Edit’ button to make changes. If you need assistance, training materials will also be available in the Help section of the Find a Person application upon launch. If you have questions or need further assistance your departmental contact is always available.

Will the URL for Find a Person change?
Yes. The new Find a Person is accessible through https://directory.ualberta.ca. We recommend updating bookmarks and document links to the new URL at your earliest convenience.

Will any of my displayed contact information change?
Yes. In order to improve accuracy of information over time, Find a Person will auto-populate information from central university applications. This may result in information not appearing as expected. If you prefer to update this information you are able to do so through the ‘Staff Login’ link. For information on how to do this, see the ‘Where do I edit/update my directory listing?’ above for more information.
