Borrowing Books, etc.
To borrow materials from any Vanderbilt library, you will need a current Alumni ID card. Cards for alumni are issued by the Commodore Card Office. For more information, go to Card Office FAQ page and select "How and when can I obtain a Commodore Card?" You may also call the Card Office at (615) 322-2273.
At the Walker Management Library, alumni enjoy the following check-out privileges with a valid Alumni ID card:
- Books - 3 weeks
- Audio books - 2 weeks
- Career books - 28 days
Borrowing books from all of Vanderbilt University's libraries is a lifelong benefit for alumni. Many non-book items, such as equipment, are only available to current Owen students. If you have questions, please call 615-322-2970.
Borrowing privileges vary at other Vanderbilt University libraries.
Vanderbilt alumni can use many of the University’s electronic databases and resources while on campus. Due to the database vendors license agreements, we can only offer remote database access to Owen alumni.
Contact a librarian for a free fifteen minute consultation.
Call the library: 615-322-2970.

Alumni may contact the Walker Management Library's Business Information Service for additional research assistance. This service ranges from advice on where to look for information to in-depth research on your topic. Cost estimates and project scope are always discussed and agreed upon in advance.
