Access to most commercial sources is restricted to the faculty, students, and staff at VIVA institutions. All VIVA resources are available to those at Virginia's public institutions. Those at Virginia's private institutions have access to VIVA resources on a case-by-case basis.
Most of the VIVA member institutions have set up special ways to permit those who are off-campus to use VIVA resources, as well as other resources provided by the individual institutions. For assistance in accessing materials from off-campus, please contact your campus library or computing center.
