An introduction to Virgo, the Library's catalog of resources.

Filtering/Limiting Results

When searching, you may have specific criteria for the results you would like to see displayed.  Virgo allows you to filter your search based on a variety of criteria including date of publication, format, and language (plus much more!). 

We'll examine a few of the most common filters:

Availability indicates if the resource is online and accessible anywhere or if it is a physical item that you will need to retrieve. 
Availability filter

Resource Type notes the format of the material.
