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. 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.
The Walker Library has over 1 million volumes, 33,134 serials and annual expenditures of $7,547,687. There are 26 faculty, 7 professional administrative staff and 34 classified staff working for the library.
In addition to our many services in the building and electronically, we also have this repository collection that provides free, open access to educational resources, research done in the library, and other library information.
