VIVO Implementations In Progress

Map of VIVO projects we know about – tell us about yours!

Many institutions run VIVO behind a campus firewall during an evaluation or initial data population and review phase, so public links to their VIVO instances are not yet available.  In addition, not all implementations mature into production projects. You may reach many of these via the VIVO implementation mailing list.
