The Vireo Users Group (VUG), established in 2010, is designed to gather and prioritize constituent needs to guide the Texas Digital Library (TDL) on the future development of the Vireo ETD Submission and Management System. Further, the VUG provides avenues for the exchange of information about Vireo development, needs and utilization.

The goals and major activities of the VUG include:

  • Prioritized lists of user stories are given to the TDL development team.
  • A vote on how product enhancements should be prioritized is conducted once a year. The Steering Committee selects the enhancements to be included in the vote.
  • Meetings are held at the annual user conference. These meetings give members a forum to express opinions and discuss issues, in person, with other members.
  • The list of enhancements and other documentation are organized and made available on the VUG website.
