Ever wonder how an idea goes from research to development to the marketplace? Part of UMKC Friends of the Library’s portFOLio series, this program illustrates how UMKC’s research is having an impact on the community, how ideas find a home in the marketplace, and the role library resources played in assisting in the EyeVerify project.
