Library Catalog Quick Start Guide

This is a guide to assist patrons using the VDOT Research Library's online catalog, which helps patrons find and use print and online library resources.

Welcome to the Catalog!

In this guide we provide step-by-step instructions for using the catalog to search the library's holdings of over 60,000 print volumes (including special collections like PE and FE exam prep materials) and about 100,000 eBooks, as well as instructions for how to "check out" and request shipment of items, placing holds, and advice for accessing subscription database content (available to VDOT employees only).

For details about our Virtual Library Card (and how it can be used in conjunction with the Catalog) see the Virtual Library Card Guide.
