U.S. Department of State - Center of Excellence Collection at U.Va. Library

Search VIRGO for State Dept. publications

NOTE: U.Va.'s extensive State Department print and microforms collections are located in Alderman Library, on 3 New  (see map),  as part of the U.S. Government Documents collection.  

    • Adding records for State Dept. documents to our library catalog, VIRGO, is an ongoing project.  Much of our collection, which includes microfilm as well as print and and digital formats, has already been cataloged and is searchable in VIRGO.

    • You may want to use VIRGO's Advanced Catalog to search for State Dept. materials, because of its multiple field search options.  United States Department of State is the official Author term.  If you use this as your Author term be sure to add subject or keyword terms to avoid retrieving thousands of results. Or, enter only United States Department of State as Author and when search results display use the facets or limiters (e.g. Subject) in the left column of the Results screen to narrow your results to a manageable number.
