This is an exercise that you probably did in a library class with Maggie in STS 4500/4600. It outlines the way that you go from a topic to identifying what information you need to where you can find the information.
If you have questions, email Maggie at firstname.lastname@example.org
Virgo is a great second step (Google is the first, obvi) to doing research. You can check what books we have on your topic (always a great kick start to an overview of whatever you're interested in), and see articles from a *selection* of our databases.
If you're inclined to save any page on the library's website, this would be the one.
It includes a list of popular databases, the link to our subject guides, and a complete list of all our database subscriptions.
Need something the UVA Library doesn't have? We can get it for you!
Whether it's an article that you can't access, a book chapter, or an entire book, if another library has it then we can borrow from them for you to use. It's convenient, quick, and free!
*If you haven't used ILL before, you'll have to create an account by click the "First Time User" button on the login box.
If you find something that you think should be part of the UVA Library collection and it's not already, feel free to submit a purchase request for it! It takes a community to build a library collection.
*If you need something really quickly, it is usually faster to go through ILL.
