HIST 4960 - Majors Seminar: Women and the Law

Getting Started


The Law School is currently closed to non-Law students and faculty. To access collections, there are two options:


1. Contact the Law Library for access to collections and building. 

2. You can also request books directly in the Library Catalog. 

     -Sign into the Library Catalog, look up the book title, and then look under the “Get It” section that will say Request.

     -You can then have the book sent to the Central Library for pick up.


As a Vanderbilt student you can:

  • get help with your research assignments by using Ask a Librarian.
  • borrow books and other items from any of the campus libraries (except Special Collections). 
  • return most items you check out to any library. 
  • Central Library has a materials budget of 2 million dollars.
  • Vanderbilt Library subscribes to over 700 databases.
  • These resources make up a majority of the Deep Web
  • Google, Bing and other familiar search engines capture less than 1% of information on the Web.
