For the first year, the 2014 Annual Report is an entirely digital edition that works to promote VIRL’s eLibrary by including interactive links (Wiki-style), taking readers directly to VIRL’s services for more information.

This digital version is also environmentally conscious and a simultaneous vehicle for advertising VIRL’s wealth of digital services.
