VIVA: Collections

Virginia's Academic Library Consortium

This guide has variable layouts and houses the majority of the "sub" pages for VIVA's website.


VIVA’s primary collections objective is to level the academic playing field throughout Virginia by ensuring that students and faculty across the state have access to the same high-quality research resources, no matter the size or type of their institution. The consortium does this by collaboratively setting collection development priorities and cooperatively negotiating and acquiring e-resources.

VIVA members provide free and open access to all VIVA resources for all users of their libraries. This includes any member of the public on the physical premises of a member library who wishes to use a VIVA resource.

The Collections pages detail the tools and resources the VIVA consortium relies on to meet these objectives.
