HIST 6100 - Introduction to Historical Methods and Research: Campus Libraries

The Heard Library System

'The Library' at Vanderbilt is made up of not one but nine libraries.  Each library has a special focus and together they make up the Heard Library system.

Biomedical           Management
Central   Music
Divinity   Peabody
Law   Science & Engineering
    Special Collections


A printable map of the library locations is available online.

Did you know...

As a Vanderbilt student you can borrow books and other items from any of the campus libraries (except Special Collections.)  

It's also good to know that you can return most of the items you've checked out to any of the campus libraries. For example, if you borrow a book from the Central Library you can return it to Peabody.

Also look for bookdrops outside the various libraries and at the Commons Center.

Where is the Annex?

The Annex is the library's offsite storage facility. 

You can't actually visit the Annex and check out the books, but we'll deliver to your preferred campus library.


It's easy!  If the item you want is in the Annex simply click on the Annex Request Button in the detail item record in Library Catalog.

Annex Deliveries are made once daily Monday-Friday
