Search Tips

To see what videos we have related to ASL and the deaf community, you can use the box to the left to search in the UVa Library Catalog (VIRGO):

Here are some sample search terms you may want to try:

  • american sign language or asl
  • deaf community
  • deaf culture
  • deaf community
  • deaf literature
  • deaf art

If you know the title of the video, you can enter that:

  • children of a lesser god
  • deaf american literature
  • asl/deaf culture lecture series

You can also search for names of individuals:

  • Gilbert Eastman
  • Mary Beth Miller
  • Louie Fant

Please note that sometimes you will find hits that do not match exactly-- this is not always a precise search.
