TALC Borrowing

TALC (Tennessee Academic Library Collaborative) Borrowing

As an MTSU student you are entitled to borrow materials from any other public community college or university in Tennessee. This includes all community college and university campuses of the Board of Regents (Motlow State, Tennessee Tech University, Tennessee State University, etc.) and campuses of the University of Tennessee.

You may pick up your TALC card at the Walker Library Circulation Desk by presenting your student ID. You will present your card, along with your valid MTSU student ID, at the campus where you would like to borrow books. Distance Education students may apply for a TALC Card online.

The circulation policies of the loaning library will apply to any materials you borrow. For example, the loan period may be shorter than at MTSU. You are responsible for returning the materials to the library from which you borrowed them and for paying any fines or fees that may occur.

TALC cards for students expire at the end of each semester. You will need to renew your card if it is needed in subsequent semesters.
