Development has produced major new releases of the core software, as well as a new tool for general purpose data ingest, the VIVO Harvester. Ontology has matured the VIVO ontology, aligning it with significant other ontologies and demonstrating the extensibility of the VIVO vocabulary for additional use cases. Implementation has progressed at all seven schools with plans to transition to sustainable operations at each. Six mini-grants were funded to augment development and spur innovation. Over 121 presentations have been made by VIVO team members in a wide variety of venues in support of VIVO adoption. Five papers are in press and an additional five conference papers have appeared. The result has been more than fifty VIVO projects in progress around the world. An open source community has been established to enable collaboration and on-going support of the software and its use in research and scholarship discovery and networking. Four annual VIVO events have been established to further create and sustain community throughout each year. The goal of establishing a national network of scientists has blossomed into a world effort to partner in support of an open information infrastructure for research discovery, collaboration and scholarly work. Significant challenges remain that will be addressed in future work. Significant improvements are needed in the ability to ingest data and implement VIVO. New capabilities are needed to make use of semantic data stored across the web of data. Connecting applications using this linked data will be a challenge.
