Library Privileges for MTSU Alumni

Walker Library serves all of the MTSU community, including alumni. MTSU alumni can check out up to four items at a time, for a period of four weeks. Items may be renewed for an additional four-week period. More information is available on the circulation policies page.

Alumni are also free to use the library's article databases and other electronic resources while in the library. For off-campus access to electronic resources, all Tennessee residents can use TEL, the Tennessee Electronic Library. Just visit http://www.tntel.info.

TEL resources include:
  • HeritageQuest Online - Family history, genealogy and census records
  • LearningExpress Library - Test preparation, job search and workplace skills
  • Tennessee Newspapers - Memphis, Chattanooga and Knoxville papers
  • EBSCO Points of View - Essays, articles, and multimedia on controversial topics
  • GALE databases - Article databases with access to newspapers, magazines and academic journals. Specialized resources like What Do I Read Next? and Literature Resource Center
The TEL Web site should not request login credentials if you are using an Internet connection originating in Tennessee. Feel free to talk to the library reference desk if you have questions.
