Using Other Libraries


APSU has cooperative borrowing agreements with all Tennessee Board of Regents and University of Tennessee libraries. To check out books in person from one of those libraries, ask for a Universal Borrower's Card at the APSU Circulation Desk BEFORE going to the other library.  More information on the use of the Card is available here.

The full services of Clarksville Montgomery County Public Library are available to Austin Peay Students with a student ID and local address.  See the CMCPL web site for more information.  APSU Faculty who are residents of Montgomery County are eligible for a borrowing card.  Those who reside in other counties should apply for borrowing privileges at their local public library. 

Other public Libraries and private universities have varying policies regarding use and check-out privileges.  APSU students and faculty should contact those libraries directly to check on their access policies and fees before attempting to visit them.   

Access to Vanderbilt University libraries is restricted; however, most of the Vandy libraries are conducting a pilot project which allows members of the public to enter the libraries Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  Vanderbilt Libraries do not allow members of the public to check books out from their libraries.  APSU students and faculty should call in advance to confirm the current access policies of Vanderbilt Libraries.  

Students who want to access Vanderbilt Libraries during evenings and weekends may contact the APSU Library Information Desk for limited-use special access cards.  Special access cards may be checked out for one week.  Students and faculty are accessed a $1.00 per day fine for cards not returned on time. 

APSU faculty may obtain a Reading Privileges Card, which allows them to enter Vanderbilt Libraries during all operating hours.  To obtain a Reading Privileges card, present your APSU faculty ID at the circulation desk of the Central Library, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  There is a one time $10.00 charge to cover the cost of the photo ID card.  APSU Faculty who prefer to use the special access card described above should contact Deborah Fetch, Director of Library Services, 221-7617

Books from other libraries can be ordered through APSU.  See Requesting Items from Other Libraries.

You may search the catalogs of other libraries using the links on the Other Libraries' Catalogs page.
