We are excited to share with you this full version of the VIVA Faculty Textbook Portal, a catalog designed to assist Virginia public college and university faculty in finding and selecting open and affordable textbooks for their courses in one place.
The Portal is part of a wide-scale Open and Affordable Initiative by VIVA to increase affordability in higher education, promote student success, and empower Virginia faculty to use and create high quality educational materials for courses that are free for students and researchers.
The Portal contains over 200,000 titles from VIVA’s shared library collections, open access textbooks, and ebooks available for VIVA to purchase on behalf of public colleges and universities throughout the state.
To learn more about VIVA’s efforts, including Course Redesign Grants and the Open Textbook Network, click here. Please send feedback or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The search box above contains all the library-owned and open access content offered through VIVA.
It also contains access to all the full text review copies of e-books available for purchase through VIVA.
Once you have found a title you can use for your course, please let us know via the Adoption or Request Purchase links!
Please complete the form, including title of the class and the number of students.
