A great resource for clubs and organizations that would like to arrange for a speaker to present a program. The Directory is published each spring as a public service. The VSO has no role in arranging the bookings.
The Directory has been compiled from sources that indicate that the individuals listed have presented well-received programs to bird clubs and similar groups. There are capsule comments that detail each speaker's specialty.
In the summer of 2004 the VSO established archives at the University of Virginia's Alderman Memorial Library, in Charlottesville. To view what records are currently in the archives, go to the University of Virginia Library website (www.lib.virginia.edu), and at the link for the Virgo library catalog, type in “Virginia Society of Ornithology”. This will take you to a listing of all VSO materials that currently make up the archives. If you have material you believe should be considered for inclusion in the VSO archives, or know of such materials, please contact either Gene Sattler (434) 582-2229, gsattler_AT_liberty.edu or the VSO President.

The Searchable Ornithological Research Archive. This unbelievable resource makes most ornithological articles published in the major journals searchable and available around the world.
Ornithological Worldwide Literature. From their website: “a compilation of citations and abstracts from the worldwide scientific literature that pertain to the science of ornithology. A major attraction is its coverage of the ‘grey’ literature, which are not abstracted by commercial databases such as Zoological Record or the Science Citation Index.”
