University of Virginia Library
University of Virginia Library > Our Organization > The Electronic Text Center The Electronic Text Center (1992-2007), known to many as “Etext,” served the University community’s teaching and research needs in the areas of humanities text encoding for fifteen years. Many of the resources once available on Etext are now available via VIRGO, the Library’s online catalog and the primary access point for all U.Va. Library digital texts and images. In the course of migrating thousands of texts from Etext to VIRGO, we determined that certain resources were not eligible for inclusion, most often due to copyright issues. Many of the texts that were not migrated can be found among other university online text collections, Google Books, HathiTrust and Project Gutenberg. If you have questions about the location of older resources, please send your inquiry to Virgo Feedback.
