Watch the BIG GAME here on Sunday!

You know which big game we are talking about right? Well apparently there is a pretty big football game on Sunday afternoon. Come inside the Walker Library and adjourn to our Lounge on the first floor. Here you will find two large screens that will be showing the awesome commercials, um, I mean game! 

Conveniently located across the hall is a vending area and restroom so you can stay focused. If you find yourself drifting during the marathon event you can always read some of our popular new releases or peruse a magazine. You only have to leave when we do.

And after the big game you can return to the lounge to relax between classes and keep current. Enjoy popular magazines, local and national newspapers, and televisions tuned to news and weather. 

Black History Month

The Walker Library at MTSU is proud to celebrate Black History Month. Throughout this month we will be highlighting resources from our collection which underscore the triumphs, struggles, and cultural contributions of African Americans. Please see our African American Studies guide for links to digital collections and lists of library materials related to this topic. 

We also feature two displays in the Walker Library:  

Just past the elevators on the Walker Library 1st floor is a display from the Center for Popular Music collection. “Rulers of Rhythm” is a look at innovative Black music icons of the 20th century linked by a nickname (King of Pop, Queen of Soul, etc.) that denotes their rule over their music genre. Each artist is represented by sheet music and/or record(s) and a brief story discussing them and their contributions to American music. 

Also on display are materials available for checkout from the Walker Library. These books celebrate the 2013 Black History Month theme: At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington. 

MTSU will be celebrating Black History Month throughout February with numerous cultural and social events.
