Library of Virginia staff devote a considerable amount of time, energy, and expertise into indexing, describing and making digitally available our amazing array of collections. While our databases are great ways to manage and deliver this content, sometimes the raw data can be an extremely valuable resource to researchers. So, we've decided to make many of our indexes available to the public as comma separated value (CSV) files. You can manipulate, search, and examine this bulk metadata in any way you'd like. As a matter of fact, we'd love for you to do something totally cool with this material - we invite you to explore these files, pose new questions of the data and see what you can discover.
