VIVO History and Implementation at Brown

Researchers@Brown replaces an outmoded legacy site, the Directory of Research and Researchers at Brown (DRR-B), with a more robust and sustainable application. Unlike the DRR-B, Researchers@Brown is tied into Brown systems of record -- Workday and Banner. Unlike the DRR-B, in which all data was purely textual, the data model for Researchers@Brown uses a standard linked data format and semantic web tools.

To ensure a smooth transition from the DRR-B, Researchers@Brown was rolled out in phases.
