Our marvelous partnership with EVIS can be passed on to the next generation. Since 2003, UDP went from the initial awkward exchanges with their representatives, to now establishing subscriptions with over 300 institutions in more than 30 countries, EVIS has made remarkable contributions and completely transformed UDP’s development strategies and direction. Kent, President of EVIS, visited UDP on May 19, 2023. He has willingly declined partnership invitations from leading competitors, just to maintain the relationship with UDP. Now being in our sixties, with both our children grown, independent, and starting families of their own. Kent wants to follow in Biden’s footsteps and continue working until he reaches the age of 80. By then, his great dream of a comprehensive database will be completed,  forging partnerships with the next generation. The best years are yet to come.
