Through the Library you have access to a wealth of electronic resources, only a fraction of which are findable through Virgo. You can search any of the many databases available. But this guide will also introduce you to ways that you can search the external web, using Google Scholar or simply searching a publisher's journal website for a particular article to get instant access to the article if UVA subscribes, or to submit a pre-populated ILL request form if we don't.
Try these databases to quickly find useful Astronomy articles. For more in-depth research, click on the Find articles tab above. Contact me if you are having trouble figuring out where to search.
Here you will find a list of some databases which are particular relevant to research in Astronomy. Be sure to look at the page on Database Search Tips for help in developing a successful search strategy.
