Hot Topics: The DuraSpace Community Webinar Series, VIVO 

Series Five: "VIVO: Research Discovery and Networking"

Curated by: Dean Krafft, Chief Technology Strategist at Cornell University Library & Chair of the VIVO-DuraSpace Incubator Project Management Committee

VIVO is an open community, an information model, and an open source semantic web application supporting the advancement of scholarship by integrating and sharing information about scholars, their activities and outputs at a single institution while supporting discovery of related work and expertise across a distributed multi-institutional network. VIVO supports descriptions of the full academic context of scholars and researchers in any discipline, and it makes explicit the connections of researchers and scholars to their grants, publications, courses, creative works, co-authors, datasets, performances, research instruments, projects, and much more.

VIVO is joining DuraSpace as the VIVO Project, via the DuraSpace incubation program, to realize our shared mission in support of research and scholarship through an established legal and financial framework compatible with VIVO’s own vision and goals. This webinar series will introduce VIVO and the VIVO community, provide views into VIVO implementations at three quite different institutions, and conclude with a more technical session describing the VIVO ontologies, linked open data, and the community processes supporting VIVO as a new project with DuraSpace.  



 Webinar 2: Case Studies: VIVO at Colorado, Brown, and              Weill Cornell Medical College

This second webinar in the VIVO series will highlight VIVO activity at four adopting institutions – the University of Colorado Boulder, Brown University, Duke University, and Weill Cornell Medical College. Presenters from each institution will show how VIVO has been configured, branded, and extended to meet local needs, and then briefly describe the teams implementing VIVO, VIVO's fit with other tools and services in their institutional setting, and the road map ahead locally and together with the VIVO community. 

Presented by: Alex Viggio, VIVO Implementation Lead, University of Colorado, Steven McCauley, Brown University and Paul Albert, Weill Cornell Medical College
