How can alumni access databases from off-campus?
If you are in the Nashville area, you are welcome to come into the library to use our databases. However, our license agreements with database vendors restrict us from providing remote database access to alumni. We do have a few databases that are available remotely to all users. You can click the following link to see a list of these databases: http://www.library.vanderbilt.edu/heard/alumni_databases.sh
Vanderbilt alumni are eligible for access and borrowing privileges to the Vanderbilt Libraries. If you are in the Nashville area, you may obtain a card to access the libraries. Cards for University alumni are issued by the Vanderbilt Card Office, 184 Sarratt Student Center, (615) 322-CARD. Cards cost $10.00 and replacement cards cost $20.00. Alumni will be asked for a photo ID for verification of status. Card Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
