From Mike Conlon, VIVO Project Director

We want to hear from you  We will be talking a bit about the future of VIVO over the coming months.  How should the software progress?  How can the community grow?  How can people participate?  What challenges exist and how can we address them?

We are very, very interested in your ideas.  Please share your thoughts.  It could be a quick comment, a word of encouragement, a treatise on the future of scholarship, whatever you may wish to share.

From Atmire   Are your considering to migrate your current repository to DSpace but you are wondering what the options are? Over the years, Atmire has carried out migrations from a variety of platforms such as EPrints, Fedora, Digital Commons, CONTENTdm, DigiTool, Equella and homegrown software. Because of its wide array of commonly used import facilities and formats, migrating to DSpace may require less work and introduce less risk than you may think.
