Librarians are available for consultation throughout your career.  We’re a life-long benefit to all Vanderbilt alumni and delighted to meet you virtually or in person. We also offer library resources that we hope will be of value throughout your long and distinguished careers.

2020 graduates will maintain library access to all electronic resources until August 2021. Summer is a great time to take advantage of access to over 100 different business research databases.

Questions about job searching? Looking to learn a new skill like Tableau or Python? Ask us anything by emailing we are happy to recommend resources to help you achieve your goals.
