Borrow circulating materials directly from other VIVA libraries!
In keeping with VIVA’s mission 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,” the VIVA Resource Sharing Committee has planned a pilot project for universal borrowing within VIVA.
Universal borrowing, as defined here, would allow patrons at any VIVA institution to borrow print books held at libraries that participate in the pilot project. It is believed that this project will benefit patrons who live near or visit other institutions, and it might have the most positive impact on distance education students.
