Business Databases for Vanderbilt Alumni

Vanderbilt University alumni are welcome to visit any of the Vanderbilt Libraries and use many research databases, check out books, and meet with a librarian. In addition, these databases are available to the graduates of Vanderbilt University’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs. Alumni of training and certificate programs should contact their alumni association for options regarding access to information resources.

Alumni without a VUNetID may request one through the Ask a Librarian service. (Note: To expedite the request, please indicate your full name at graduation the school from which you graduated, and your year of graduation.)

Alumni who graduated 2011 and later can re-authenticate a VUNetID here: VUIT AccessVU - Existing Users 

Alumni VUNet IDs must be renewed annually. Before your VUNet ID expires, you may submit a request to renew it by emailing: If your VUNet ID has already expired, please re-authenticate your VUNet ID here: AccessVU - Existing Users.
