Historical Information

The Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) is a consortium organized in 1994 to provide, in an equitable, cooperative and cost effective manner, enhanced access to library and information resources for Commonwealth of Virginia institutes of higher education serving the higher education community. VIVA facilitates its member libraries cooperative purchase of electronic databases and sharing of other resources such as their valuable print collections.

The 39 State-assisted academic colleges and universities in Virginia are charter members of VIVA by legislative action. These include the 6 public doctoral institutions; 9 comprehensive institutions; and 24 community colleges and two-year branch campuses. In addition, the private non-profit institutions of higher education comprising the Virginia Independent College and University Library Association (VICULA) have participated as charter members from the inception of VIVA. The Library of Virginia, as a State library agency with educational and research mission, also participates as a member of VIVA.
