Reserves... what's that?

Does your syllabus say "on reserve in the Library"? Do you know what that is? 

The Reserves department supports the instructional needs of University faculty by providing greater access to limited resources like course packets, instructor's personal copies, copyrighted materials, books, etc. Most items on reserve must be used within the library on a 1-3 hour loan. You can make copies (where allowable by copyright) at the copy center or on library scanners.

Materials in the Reserves collection may be borrowed and returned at the Circulation Desk located to the left when entering the atrium of the Library. The Circulation Desk is staffed during all hours the library is open. You can also access some items on e-reserves. Let us know if you have questions: 615-904-8539.

Welcome New Freshmen!

...and everyone else!

Finding your way on campus the first few days can be confusing. Even if you were here last semester over the summer there have been lots of changes on campus. If you are on campus Monday the 26th or Tuesday the 27th, look for the Walker Library Question Tent in the quad in front of the library. We can answer any questions you have. We will be outside 7:30 am-1:30pm  on both days. Of course, you can come in and ask questions at any desk whenever the library is open. To help you get sorted here are some links of interest-
