Tips for VCU Libraries Search

When searching for early imprints at VCU, try: 

  • limiting your search by Publication Date 
  • limiting your search to Library "Special Collections" (all pre-1820 imprints are shelved here)
  • the "Browse Books and Media" option. It works exactly like a print card catalog and allows browsing by author, title, subject, and call number. To access Browse, first click "Advanced" on the library home page, or run a search, and then look for the "Browse Books and Media" link.
