Choose the video search screen
There are six indices within VIRGO:
1-Keyword anywhere - The broadest searching mechanism; looks for the words or phrases in the title, description, author field or anywhere in the record of the book.
2-Author - Searches only the author field of the record. This can prove a difficult search if the authors name is common (Smith, John) or if the author's name can be spelled several ways (as with some foreign names). If you do not know how the author spells his/her last name you may not be successful.
3-Title - Searches for words or phrases found only in the title eliminating what may be found in a description of the book.
4-Subject - This searches specifically for Library of Congress Subject Headings not a general subject. This can be a tricky search unless you are familiar with LC headings.
5-MeSH - Medical Subject Headings will not be applicable for an art topic.
6-Journal Title - Searches for all Journal Titles in the U.Va. collection. When searching for a specific Journal Title always eliminate any article at the beginning of the title (The, A, Le, L').
Searching in periodical databases will retrieve the most recent scholarship on your subject. Remember to tailor your search to your choice of database.
