Welcome, students!

We’re so glad to have you at UVA and want you to know the Library is here for you — no question is too big or too small.

This semester is a little different from usual, but here are some things you won’t want to miss:

  • Looking for something? Search Virgo!
    • The Virgo catalog holds millions of items for research, enlightenment, and entertainment! A huge body of material is available online, from the comfort of your home or dorm room.
  • Not sure what to do? Ask a Librarian!
    • Use online chat to Ask a Librarian anything that’s on your mind. Don’t be shy… we’ve heard it all!
  • Collections access, safely.
    • If you need an item that’s not available online, simply request it in Virgo and we’ll help connect you, safely socially distanced along the way.
  • Subscribe to Library news
    • We all know things are in flux this semester. The easiest way to stay up to date is to follow us on Twitter @UVALibrary and subscribe to Library news in your email. It’s the fastest way to know the latest about study spaces, browsing access, and more!
  • Zooming around the Library…

There’s so much more…

We can’t safely offer EVERYTHING right now, but we’re working on it!

We’re working on plans to safely offer more of our normal services, such as:

  • Room reservations for studying or group work.
  • (Free!) equipment rental, like VR headsets and video cameras.
  • Study spaces, big and small.
  • And lots more.

In the meantime, we’re here to help (it’s literally our job), and are so happy you’re at UVA!
