A quick start guide to using the ICE Virtual Library subscription database, available to VDOT employees through the VDOT Research Library.

Should I Register an Account?

VDOT employees DO NOT need to register an account in order to search for and start using full-text articles and papers in the ICE Virtual Library. However, registration is quick and easy, and it makes additional features and functionality available. 

Registering for a user login is free, and provides the following tools and benefits:

  • Manage your account settings
  • Request e-mail content and article tracking alerts
  • Save your searches so you can run them again later
  • Save your favorite articles and journals
  • Link your mobile device to access ICE content 

How Do I Register?

The option to "Register" is in the upper right-hand corner of the ICE Virtual Library (shown below) next to "Sign in" which is what you'll use after you create an account.
