This wiki

The most important function of using a wiki for VIVO Software is to provide information for everyone to participate. You will need a SourceForge account with editor permissions to contribute to the wiki. To gain these permissions, create a SourceForge account, then please send an email to the vivo-dev-all mailing list or ask someone in the IRC channel for those permissions.

Please use the wiki navigation panel to the left to explore important elements of the VIVO project.

For a list of solutions to common problems, visit the Problems and Solutions page.

For help using the harvester, see VIVO Harvester and Harvester User Guide.

For help using the VIVO, check out the project documentation in the file download section of sourceforge. The Implementation page also contains several guides to help you get started.

For answers to frequently asked questions, consult the VIVO FAQs page.
