Rollout Approach

Academic Technology, in partnership with Research Information Technology, undertook a review and vetting process of the Vivo platform. There were Open Forums held in May  and September 2018. After meeting with stakeholders throughout the spring, changes based on this feedback were made to platform over the summer.    Additional feedback from faculty senate, the myElements Governance Board, and individual researchers and faculty was incorporated before the launch of the first version on Monday, November 26, 2018.   Academic Technology, Research Information Technology and the governance board continue to maintain the FindScholars@UNH roadmap and continuously improve the site.  See the roadmap in the Timeline section of this site.
