Because a successful VIVO implementation requires engaging and informing the community, as well as managing development and data loads, detailed planning is critical. The more information you have going in, the more options you'll consider and the greater chance you will have of success. You can benefit from the experiences, knowledge, and best practices gained from other VIVO community members. The information in this section can help get you started and provide pointers to contacts in the community who are eager to help.
In addition to this information, a listserv has been created for those planning and conducting VIVO implementations. We hope that as more members share their knowledge, this section keeps getting revised and becomes more useful, so check back later in case there are changes.
