The Vanderbilt Libraries continue to provide critical resources for research in a manner that maintains your safety and security. Since early March, we have fulfilled 3,170 e-requests for Vanderbilt patrons and delivered 3,070 e-requests to other libraries around the world.Contact Vanderbilt’s Interlibrary Loan department to request titles for your research.
We have access to temporarily available e-resources during this period when few research libraries are sharing physical volumes. If we cannot access a title needed for teaching or research, we will work with our acquisitions department to purchase an e-book.
Since March 9, we have provided hundreds of scans from our collections in lieu of physical books and purchased over 500 e-books to support course readings, instruction and research. The libraries have created a research guide for content made temporarily available by publishers and added thousands of those titles to the library catalog so they will appear in your searches.
