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.

When on campus, alumni may access most of the library’s electronic resources which are available in the campus libraries. The library also offers off-campus access to a    select group of specially licensed alumni databases . For off-campus access, alumni will need a current VUNetID which must be renewed every 12 months. To obtain or reset a VUNetID, submit a request via the link   Ask a Librarian   with your full name, school name and the year of graduation.
