Welcome to the Library

From Dean Bonnie Allen
Welcome to MTSU and the James E. Walker Library. This building, one of the most attractive on campus, was built in 1999 and was named after the 8th president of MTSU, Dr. James E. Walker. Many students who enter the building for the first time are immediately struck by its beauty, but also perhaps a little overwhelmed by its size and array of resources and services. The library does have a lot of services, and does have a collection of well over a million volumes on the shelves and at least that much online, but we are dedicated to helping students feel successful and help break down any feelings of being overwhelmed by the size and scope of not only the library, but the whole college experience.
Once you grab a cup of coffee (from the in-house Starbucks), you can find a space in the library that suits your needs. We have quiet spaces and collaborative spaces, and we have several help desks. You can find help with research at the Reference Desk, tutoring help at the Tutoring Spot, and additional help at the Writing Center, Technology Services, and more. Whether you are an undergraduate, grad student, or faculty member, we have services to assist you. It's all here, so we hope to see you soon!
