Researching Early Virginia Agencies

Check with the 3rd floor desk staff for further assistance.  We may, for instance, have individual agency publications in our stacks under their own call number – INS for the Insurance Commission, etc.  These may not cover the time period of the late 1920s, but some may cover that time period or give further insight into earlier actions.  NOTE: All Virginia documents are in the 3 Old Stacks in Alderman Library unless otherwise noted.

Check VIRGO first– Virginia documents received after 1986 are cataloged in VIRGO.  However, earlier Virginia documents may not be listed in VIRGO.
