Bibliographic Instruction of VIVA Resources
Most VIVA resources do not have a simultaneous user limit, so bibliographic instruction (BI) does not present the risk of shutting out other users. Our vendors have provided the following information to assist VIVA member librarians in planning BI sessions.
For additional information about the vendor and products, click the vendor name.
