The Virginia Tidewater Consortium for Higher Education serves as the major vehicle for regional cooperation among institutions of higher education and affiliated agencies. Since 1973 consortium institution libraries have participated in reciprocal direct borrowing to students, faculty and staff of member institutions. In many cases, the electronic resources and services of consortium libraries are also available to member institutions. Several subcommittees of the VTC Library Directors Committee serve to share information and coordinate various services of VTC libraries.
This VTC Libraries Web site provides information to members of the consortium who wish to take advantage of the many library resources available in the Tidewater area but need to know details about the libraries and their VTC policies first. A section on "Doing Research" should assist students who may need help with the research process.
