About the Library
The mission of the Peabody Library is to support the teaching and research needs of our faculty, students, and staff through our resources, instruction and services. The library is housed in a classically designed 1919 facility, which was substantially renovated in 2004 to modernize the space and offer support for modern technologies. The library contains approximately 250,000 volumes and hundreds of databases, curriculum materials, e-journals, and microform on the subjects of teaching and learning, special education, psychology and human development, human and organizational development, and leadership, policy and organizations. Also to be found in the building is a Learning Commons, a large, flexible group work space, and more than 40 computer workstations. As one of eight campus libraries that make up the Jean and Alexander Heard Library system at Vanderbilt University, we share access to many of the services and resources available system-wide, including 3.3 million volumes, interlibrary loan services, Geographic Information Services (housed in the Peabody Library) and faculty delivery.
