Walker Library is where students get work done, and MTSU has a hardworking student body.
Libraries have changed more in the past twenty years than at any other time in their long history. The changes have primarily been driven by the birth of the internet and the evolution of communication that has followed. The landscape of publishing and access to information has been redefined to emphasize electronic media for its ease of access effectiveness for research.
While technology is the engine that propels us forward, we have not lost the personal touch in any manner. Students find the Library as a safe haven. The faculty and staff of Walker Library provide expert assistance, instruction and even encouragement to students every day. We see students’ lives change as we work with them to complete their education.
Through our staff, collections, and innovations, Walker Library is dedicated to sustaining a vibrant and forward looking learning environment that contributes to our student’s success.
Please accept my sincere appreciation for your past support of Walker Library and present consideration of the library’s future.
