VIVA Contracts

Current VIVA Contracts

Contracts for most current VIVA resources are provided here (in Adobe Acrobat PDF and/or Word form) to help members understand fully the rights and responsibilities associated with each VIVA license. Many key contract provisions are not included in the initial contract, but would be included in accompanying documentation (e.g. RFPs, follow up letters, and email) on file in the VIVA Central Office and with JMU Procurement, which handles all VIVA Procurement. Please contact the the VIVA Central Office (viva@gmu.edu) if you have specific questions. The Contract Numbers are included, where available, for most contracts. 

All contracts are password protected. If you require a password for access please send an email to viva@gmu.edu.

Past VIVA Contracts and Perpetual Access

Contracts for past VIVA resources, or older replaced contracts, are available upon request. Many past VIVA contracts include provisions for perpetual access content, available to VIVA members. Please contact the VIVA Central Office if you need a copy of a past contract or a list of past contracts (viva@gmu.edu). 

The following resources are those that contain perpetual access content for VIVA members.
