MTSU's Walker Library waives overdue fees for students during pandemic

The James E. Walker Library at MTSU will waive all overdue fees for materials during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Because of Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s “stay-at-home” directive, MTSU’s library is suspending all remaining on-site services temporarily, including the “pull and hold” service that was implemented in its initial response to the coronavirus shutdown.

However, since it is taking longer than usual to check in returned materials, the library, is granting students extended due dates on all checked out items until the end of the semester.

Students and faculty still have access online to millions of full-text journal, magazine and newspaper articles as well as more than 800,000 e-books, hundreds of streaming videos and millions of streaming audio files.

The library’s remote services page is https://library.mtsu.edu/remote-services. The library’s virtual hours are available at https://library.mtsu.edu.
