As part of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation-funded Adoption and Integration Program, we are collecting use cases from participating institutions. The preliminary mid-project use case reports are attached to the page below and include:

  • An overview of each case
  • Contact information for project personnel who have agreed to serve as a resource to other organizations interested in a similar integration.
