Welcome and Quick Links

Congratulations on joining the Vanderbilt community -- and welcome to the Vanderbilt Library system. Get oriented to the library by visiting our website using the quick-access buttons below.

There are seven libraries in the VU system, including the main library, which is called Central (see the map on the right). The other libraries on campus include DivinityPeabody, Music, Walker (Management), Law, Science & Engineering, and Eskind Biomedical. We also have an amazing Special Collections department (part of which is the Vanderbilt TV Archive). Each of the libraries has its own hours and borrowing policies. Check the individual library's website for more details, or ask a member of the staff there.

Why Use Library Databases?

  • Vanderbilt library subscribes to over 700 databases that index and organize "deep web" content.
  • Google, Bing, Wikipedia, and other familiar sources capture anywhere between 1-4% of information on the Web.
  • The so-called "deep web" will help you avoid the paywalls, pop-ups, and other obstacles that the open and paid web usually throw at you.
