Showcase the scholarship at your institution!  This week, the VIVO membership drive began in earnest with an email to all VIVO community members.  I hope you received the email and are considering how your institution might financially support VIVO:

  • Corporations can participate as Duraspace corporate sponsors.  See
  • Academic institutions and research organizations can participate as Duraspace members.  See
  • Existing members and financial supporters may wish to consider increasing their support for 2016.  Cornell University recently tripled its financial support of the VIVO Project.  We thank Cornell for this outstanding support!

The text of the email is available as a blog post.  Please share the link with those in your institution who may wish to support open source software, and the development of VIVO.  We appreciate your help in getting the word out regarding the membership drive and we look forward to your financial support!
