Webinar: VIVO and the Role of Librarians.  From Violeta Ilik: I wanted to share with all of you two upcoming webinars that are scheduled to happen in February and March. They relate to VIVO and the role of librarians. I am very happy that American Library Association is acknowledging the role of librarians in implementation and continuous support of this project and I am truly honored to have been asked to teach these two webinars. Hope you can join in or recommend to someone.
