If you wish to create an extensive directory of university staff, this is your plugin of choice. It has option for everything you can think of and is 100% adaptable.
However, the integration is completely useless for me. I basically want this as an extension to the existing user profiles, not as a standalone feature (which is actually is). The profiles behave just like blog posts and don't seem to be associated with existing user profiles at all, even if you link them.
