(With the caveat that compiling the comprehensive faculty publication db is not a walk in the park at all particularly if you want to include the publications from when the faculty were working at other institutions and also by all types of faculty- not just full-time or tenured.)
You can do any of these:
1. RefShare list through Refworks
2. RSS feeds from databases (by looking up the institution of the author)
3. Build Custom database (Ours beta site is at: http://bayonet.fiu.edu/library/facpub/ if you want to take a look)
4. Use IR
5. License proprietary products (e.g. Digital Measures or Sedona)
At MPOW, we tried 1 and 2 but switched to 3 recently. We have IR but do not use it for faculty publication database purposes But we are thinking about using it in conjunction with 3 so that 3 would link to the full-text if there exists any pre/post print articles in the IR.
My college (medical school) is also considering 5. I was in the meeting with the vendors for these products and they do much more than keeping track of publications and do keep track of all faculty activities - publication, services, committees, courses, teachings, conference presentations, etc. for statistical purposes. But faculty members are asked to enter the items themselves (or find the department staff who will do it for them).

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Faculty publication database
Does your library maintain a database of faculty publications? How do you do it?
Some things I've come across in my (admittedly brief) research:
- RSS feeds from the major databases
- RefWorks citation lists
These options do not necessarily work for my university, made up of 24 colleges/institutions, 6,700+ FT faculty, and 270,000+ degree-seeking students.
Does anyone have a better solution? It need not be searchable: we are just interested in pulling a periodical report of articles written by our faculty/students without relying on them self-reporting days/weeks/months/years after the fact.
