What is VIVA, the
Virtual Library of Virginia?
A consortium of academic libraries in Virginia, VIVA was established in 1993
with funds from the State Council of Higher Education of Virginia (SCHEV) to
create a network of shared electronic resources for students and faculty and to facilitate cooperation among its members.

The special collections departments at Virginia's colleges and
universities and its state library collect, preserve, and provide access
to unique resources. Through Internet access many more citizens of the
Commonwealth and beyond can know of the availability of these resources.
Through scanning, digitizing, and original electronic documents, access is becoming available to the guides, finding aids, and electronic collections. Unique Virginia resources are being converted from sometimes fragile and delicate materials, to electronic text and digital images available to many simultaneous users at all hours of every day.
