Winchester, MA The VIVO2015 conference was the best yet! With a wonderful turnout of attendees, the conference was a great collaboration of ideas as it provided many opportunities for learning.

Mark your calendar now to attend the 2016 conference happening:
Winchester, MA On Sept. 21, 2015 Graham Triggs took over as technical lead for the VIVO project. He took the reins from a team of talented developers that include the original VIVO developers–Jon Corson-Rikert, Brian Lowe, and Brian Caruso, many others who have contributed to VIVO as an open source project, and Jim Blake as the recent VIVO lead developer and release manager. As Jim Blake ended his official work with VIVO he paused to reflect on key accomplishments and changes during his tenure.
Winchester, MA Please save the dates for the Annual DuraSpace Summit for DuraSpace members that will be held at the Cosmos Club on Embassy Row in Washington, D.C. March 16-17, 2016.

The Summit is an opportunity for them to come together to learn about current DuraSpace organizational strategy, participate in DSpace, Fedora and VIVO strategic discussions and contribute to open source technology planning sessions.
Hidden treasures are even better when they are discovered. The VIVO community wiki pages are one of those treasures. This section of the DuraSpace wiki offers the VIVO community a wealth of information, best practices and valuable resources that can assist institutions in implementing, managing and sharing VIVO data and resources. Here are highlights of what you will find in the VIVO Community pages.
