New VIRGO Catalog Coming Soon!

We are very pleased to report that starting July 15th, 2010, the U.Va. Library will move to a new search interface, VIRGOnew, for our online catalog. With the new VIRGO you can:

  • Search items the Library has catalogued, including books, journal titles, DVDs, CDs, sheet music, websites, and microfilm, and also, in the same search for the first time, digital collections of images and texts;
  • Filter your results by format, dates, and keywords;
  • Sort your results by relevancy ranking, date received, author, title or call number;
  • Save and share your searches and results in Delicious, RefWorks, and Zotero;
  • Select, save, print, e-mail, and SMS multiple records;
  • Generate an RSS feed for your search, so you can be notified when the Library acquires materials in your subject area.

We thank you for your feedback and support as we continue to develop this exciting new research tool. Answers to some of the questions you may have about the new interface are available at: Or, please feel free to contact the Information Desk in the Brown Science and Engineering Library at 434-924-3628 for more information.  You may also contact your subject librarian listed here:
