About VIVA

The Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) is the consortium of nonprofit academic libraries within the Commonwealth of Virginia.

VIVA's mission is to provide, in an equitable, cooperative and cost-effective manner, enhanced access to library and information resources for the Commonwealth of Virginia's nonprofit academic libraries serving the higher education community.

VIVA Borrowing Program

The VIVA Cooperative Borrowing Program allows Regent students, faculty, and staff in-person borrowing privileges from any participating library (Students must show school ID and login to home university Blackboard for proof of enrollment). Not all VIVA schools participate in the program and there may be restrictions on the number and type of items one can borrow. 

Program guidelines can be found here  and a list of participating institutions can be found here

Regent faculty, staff and students must comply with all policies of the participating library they are utilizing. This program is especially helpful for those living closer to another participating VIVA library.
