The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) is a twin-campus institution located on St. Croix and St. Thomas. UVI was chartered on March 16, 1962, as the College of the Virgin Islands - a publicly funded, coeducational, liberal arts institution - by Act No. 862 of the Fourth Legislature of the U.S. Virgin Islands. According to the law, UVI's cornerstone objective is to provide for "...the stimulation and utilization of the intellectual resources of the people of the Virgin Islands and the development of a center of higher learning whereby and wherefrom the benefits of culture and education may be extended throughout the Virgin Islands." UVI is a public liberal arts-based Masters II university, a Historically Black College and University, and a Land-Grant institution. It continues to offer high-quality, affordable liberal arts education and professional programs in a culturally diverse environment. The University's objective is to be recognized as the leading American institution of higher learning in the Caribbean.
The University of the Virgin Islands Library is contributing materials to the Digital Library of the Caribbean from the United States Virgin Islands History and Culture Collection. The digitization Project began in 2000 as a collaborative project of the UVI, The Division of Libraries, Archives & Museums, and the V.I. Department of Education with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The Project sought to enhance access to sources of information on Virgin Islands' history and culture for scholars, students, historians, and researchers in the territory and abroad.
