Virginia Publications

by Lyn C. A. Gardner

Virginia Libraries invites VLA members and Virginia creators to send news of their latest publications. Publications should have appeared (whether in print or electronic format) 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 digital, text-only, or audio-visual (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. Finally, as this list may also be used to find books to review for the “Virginia Reviews” column, it will also contain works on Virginia subjects. It is further hoped that works on this list will be of interest to Virginia libraries for their Virginia content and/or creation.

If you have access to a work on this list and would like to review it, please query the editors (see page four for more information). If you would like to send along publication news (your own or others), please email the columnist at cgardner@hampton.gov with the subject line “Virginia Publications.”
