Book talk: VIVO--A Semantic Approach to Scholarly Networking and Discovery

Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Mann Library, Room 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

The world of scholarship is changing rapidly, and increasing demands on scholars require new approaches.

Join Jon Corson-Rikert, Brian Lowe, and Dean Krafft for a "Chats in the Stacks" talk about “VIVO” (Morgan and Claypool, October 2012), part of the “Synthesis Lectures on the Semantic Web: Theory and Technology” series. The book provides an introduction to VIVO,, a tool for representing information about research and researchers -- their scholarly works, research interests, and organizational relationships.

Begun as a project at Cornell and further developed by an NIH funded consortium, VIVO is now being established as an open-source project with community participation from around the world.

Corson-Rikert is head of Information Technology Services at Mann Library and the initial VIVO developer at Cornell starting in 2003. Krafft is the Chief Technology Strategist and director of Information Technology at Cornell Library, and Lowe is a software developer at Mann Library.

Light refreshments will be available. This talk is funded by the Mary A. Morrison Public Education Fund at Mann Library.
