  1. Cornell – met with Institutional Research office today – very interested in the Scimap visualizations
  2. Florida – have 35,000 course records ingested on a test server; starting to plan harvester tool changes; will look at a vitual appliance for Vitro after the release of VIVO 1.4 - what sort of test data can we get that could be distributed with the VIVO 1.4 virtual appliance?
  3. North Texas – "looking at how to harvest data from Google Scholar and trying to identify the path to VIVO – bibtex? BibUtils -> MODS -> Harvester -> VIVO?
  4. Weill Cornell
  5. : how should we tackle spams initiated from the Contact Us form - integrate captcha (ReCaptcha) into VIVO? "A strong candidate for 1.5 – hopefully quite straightforward

Special Topics

  • How to look up Library of Congress and VIAF authority records for organizations in your university or anywhere
    • Go to and set the search type to "name authority headings"
    • Search for a department in your university (include your university name), click on the desired result, and look for a link called "Authority Record." results seem to vary depending on what entries catalogers have made
    • That record will have an identifier and list a URI – e.g.,
    • If you click on that link, look for a link on the resulting page that connects to the same record in VIAF, an international database maintained by OCLC and various national libraries – e.g.,
