This project is funded by the National Institutes of Health, U24 RR029822, "VIVO: Enabling National Networking of Scientists". VIVO Collaboration:
  3. 3. In September 2009, seven institutions received $12.2 million in funding from the National Center for Research Resources of the NIH to to enable National Networking with VIVO •Originally developed at Cornell University in 2004 to support Life Sciences •Reimplemented using RDF, OWL, Jena and SPARQL in 2007 •Now covers all faculty, researchers and disciplines at Cornell •Implemented at University of Florida in 2007 •Underlying system in use at Chinese Academy of Sciences and Australian Universities VIVO history… born in the library
  4. 4. VIVO is: Populated with detailed profiles of faculty and researchers; displaying items such as publications, teaching, service, and professional affiliations. A powerful search functionality for locating people and information within or across institutions. An open-source semantic web application that enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplines in an institution.
  5. 5. Who uses VIVO? …and many more! Faculty/Scholar/Researcher/Scientist •Find collaborators •Track competitors •Keep abreast of new work •Rely on customizable profiles maintained via automatic updates Student •Locate mentors, advisors, or collaborators •Locate events, seminars, courses, programs, facilities •Showcase own research Administrator •Showcase college, program, departmental activities •Identify areas of institutional strength •Manage data in one place Donor/ Funding Agency •Discover current funded projects •Search for specialized expertise •Visualize research activity within an institution
  6. 6. VIVO’s semantic advantage Data modeled as bidirectional relationships
  7. 7. Faceted search, browse, and ontology hierarchy
  8. 8. Why Libraries? • Are a trusted, neutral entity • Have a tradition of service and support • Strive to serve all missions of the institution • Are technology centers and have IT and data expertise • Have skills—information organization, instruction, usability, subject expertise • Have close relationships with their clients (buy in) • Understand user needs • Understand the importance of collaboration and know how to bring people together • Have knowledge of institution, research, education, clinical landscape Librarians: Libraries:
  9. 9. Library staff as facilitators Oversight of initial content development • Oversee content, local ontology and interface refinement • Negotiate with campus data stewards for publicly visible data Support and training: local and national level • Use existing VIVO documentation, presentation/demo templates • Provide support, web site FAQs, etc. Communication/liaising • Engage with potential collaborators, participants • Usability: Feedback, new use cases from users to implementation team
  10. 10. VIVO harvests much of its data programmatically from verified sources • Reduces the need for manual input of data • Provides an integrated and flexible source of publicly visible data at an institutional level Data, data, data Individuals may also edit and customize their profiles to suit their professional needs. External data sources Internal data sources
  11. 11. Repurposing and re-using data
  12. 12.  Stored in Resource Description Framework (RDF) triples  Uses the shared VIVO Core Ontology to describe people, organizations, activities, publications, events, interests, grants, and other relationships  Incorporates Friend-of-a-Friend (FOAF) and Bibliographic Ontology (BIBO)  Supports local ontology extensions for institution-specific needs Data in VIVO: Semantic Web standards Subject Predicate (verb) Object Riha, Susan research area crop management Riha, Susan international geographic focus Brazil Riha, Susan submitter of impact statement Climate change and its impact on the distribution of invasive weeds Riha, Susan selected publication (authorship) Biomass, harvestable area, and forest structure estimated from commercial timber inventories and remotely sensed imagery in southern Amazonia
