SYNERGY, along with the Informatics Collaboratory for Design, Development and Dissemination (ic3d)
and Geisel School of Medicine, are proud to announce the availability of Dartmouth VIVO—a web-based faculty profiling system that allows researchers to create, maintain, and share scholarly information such as the publications they’re working on, the grants they’ve received, and who they’re mentoring.
To check your profile in Dartmouth VIVO, visit: https://vivo.dartmouth.edu
Dartmouth VIVO replaces and builds on the data in the current Geisel Faculty Database website and offers opportunities for discovering who is doing what in scholarship, including tools used in grant development, team-building, mentoring, and social network analysis. Future updates will include profiles from other Dartmouth institutions such as the Thayer School of Engineering and Arts and Sciences.
Our local implementation of VIVO, a member-supported, open source software and ontology for representing scholarship, Dartmouth VIVO creates a connected, integrated record of the scholarly work at Geisel, ready for reporting, visualization, and analysis. VIVO supports browsing and a search function, which returns faceted results for rapid retrieval of desired information.
Content in a VIVO installation may be maintained manually, brought into VIVO in automated ways from local systems of record, such as those from human resources, grants, courses, and faculty activity databases, or from database providers such as publication aggregators and funding agencies.
VIVO is one of a suite of open technology projects supported by DuraSpace, an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing leadership and innovation for open technologies that promote durable, persistent access to digital data. VIVO is supported with in-kind contributions of development resources and financial donations through the DuraSpace Membership Program, which includes Dartmouth College among the 150+ institutions and organizations that help support VIVO and other DuraSpace projects.
