Welcome to the library dashboard for ENWR courses. The dashboard provides quick links to the resources you need to succeed in your course. Whether you are online or on-Grounds, UVA Library services and support are available to all students.
Your Librarian is Sherri Brown.
Each school/department at UVA is assigned a research librarian. Sherri is the research librarian for the English department and is happy to help with your assignments. Schedule an appointment with her below. Other research librarians also provide instruction and consultation. Connect with a research librarian to discuss your research needs.
This service is available to all ENWR students, no matter your major, and meeting with a librarian early in your research process can help you save time and find the best resources.
Librarians can help with any part of your research process: brainstorming a research topic/question and creating a search strategy; finding, evaluating, and organizing your sources; integrating your sources in your writing; and creating appropriate citations. No question is too basic! Librarians can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.
Virgo is the Library catalog, where you can find books, articles, and more.
Academic databases contain peer-reviewed articles, scientific papers, reports, and more. Since ENWR course topics vary widely, below you'll find some interdisciplinary databases that are useful for researching in many disciplinary areas. See the Library's A-Z database list or refer to specific Subject Guides to help you find the best databases for your research needs -- and contact us if you want advice!
The UVA Library offers many short tutorials and guides to help you get started with using the library and conducting research. A few are listed below. Find more at the How do I . . . ? tutorials page.
