Virgo, the U.Va. Library’s primary search tool, contains catalog records for books, print journals, DVDs, maps, and digitized materials, as well as links to online articles from our rich array of subscription journals. You can search catalog materials and articles together, or view those results separately, using the facets provided to limit your results by author, format, publication period, and more.
Literature Resource Center (LRC) includes full text articles from the Dictionary of Literary Biography and Contemporary Authors – terrific sources for author biographies.
Newspapers and popular magazines are a great place to find reviews of contemporary fiction. In addition to Literature Resource Center and Academic Search Complete (listed below), you can use LexisNexis or Factiva, our two large newspaper databases, to find recent reviews.
