Checking-out Materials

CHECK OUT BOOKS WITH YOUR PHONE! Download the checkout@vandylibraries app for IOS or download the checkout@vandylibraries for Android to use your mobile device to check out books and materials.

First, check for e-versions of texts via the library's online catalog.

If you need a physical item but would prefer to pick it up, you can choose that option from our catalog. Pickups are by appointment outside the 21st Avenue entrance to the Central/Divinity Libraries, outside the Blair School of Music, and at the front desk of the Eskind Biomedical Library. Please allow up to 3 business days for fulfillment of physical item requests.

Use Journal Search to find print and online periodicals at the library.

Current issues of print journals and newspapers are available on the 6th floor of the Central Library in the Periodicals Reading Room. 

This space is also a great place to study.
