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.

A Digital Project Preservation Plan is designed to help with organizing preservation efforts for digital projects. Initially drafted as a companion guide meant to fill the gap on best methods for preserving digital scholarship or digital humanities projects, it can also be applied to digital projects outside the humanities. This preservation plan is most beneficial to those digital humanities (DH) project creators who need guidance on how to start a digital project with preservation in mind. Although the DH community has shared resources and case studies, the examples available tend to focus on DH development, and less on DH preservation. These resources are also located in disparate locations. The Digital Project Preservation Plan is a singular guide, focusing on DH preservation, as a starting point with references to more resources and related DH practices. This is a working document, available to practitioners in whole or part; ideally, it will be used in the early stages of project planning and consulted and revised regularly. The preservation infrastructure should be designed and built as a collaborative effort from the beginning of the project. As priorities, methods and technologies change, the preservation plan will need to be updated and modified accordingly.
