Just because you found your source in the Virtual Library, doesn’t mean you necessarily need to cite it as an electronic source. Many resources are digitized from their original print publications for easier access.
Rule of Thumb:
If you are using a book, journal, magazine, or newspaper that you located using the Virtual Library, cite the source as a regular print resource.

If you are using a source available from a government website or some other sponsoring institution, association, or agency website, cite the source as an electronic source.
