Desegregation of Virginia Education (DOVE):Catalog

Access and Search the DOVE Catalog

The DOVE Catalog is available as a WordPress site, compliments of George Mason University.

About the DOVE Catalog

The DOVE catalog was created as a way to share and preserve records that tell the story of Virginia's school desegregation process. It lists relevant primary and secondary sources held in repositories around the country, including local historical societies, university special collections, government repositories and public libraries.

Because the collections reside at a wide range of institutions, we are not able to provide access to the collections themselves. Researchers seeking specific information on and access to collections listed in the catalog are requested to use the repository information to contact the holding institution directly.

To add records to the catalog, it is helpful to conduct a Records Survey.
