In addition, the RSCVD committee has honored four of its founding members, who each worked hard to launch RSCVD on the international scene and ensure its sustainability as a free tool for everyone: Peter Bae (Bowdoin College, US), Tina Baich (Indianapolis University, US), Ertuğrul Çimen (MEF University, Turkey) and Peter Collins (OCLC, US).  They will collaborate closely with the committee.

This project is supported by the RSCVD platform, and powered by the TALARIA software.
