    • Our biggest issue right now is trying to assign a DOI to each new instance created (Person, Organization, Project, etc...) We can not find the one place in the VIVO code where we can add a call to a web service to pull back the new DOI (DCO-ID), and fill in part of the instance data for that new instance. We found one place, but it doesn’t cover it all.
