Virginia Libraries invites VLA members and Virginia creators to send news of their latest publications. Publications should have occurred within the previous year or two and will only be featured once. VLA members are particularly encouraged to share news of their intellectual property contributions, whether print or electronic, text or AV. Asterisks before the author’s name will indicate known VLA members (please include this information). We also welcome works produced by Virginia residents and solicit the help of readers who are aware of Virginia authors to populate this column.
If you have access to a work on this list and would like to review it, please query the editors (see page 4 for more information). If you would like to send along publication news, please email the columnist at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, and happy reading (and listening)!
