Connected Campus

Ph.D Library Program


This program allows you to:


  • Check out up to a limit of 150 books, unless you receive special permission from the Library Director to increase the limit. Decisions will be made on an individual basis
  • There will only be one renewal when books will have to be brought to the Library for checkout. This will normally take place in May
  • During renewal weeks, you may renew books by fax 901-751-8454, phone901-751-3007, mail 2095 Appling Road, Cordova, TN 38016, or e-mail



Other Policies:

  • Holds may be placed on any books checked out
  • Shortened checkout times occur as needed
  • As reminders, doctoral students are e-mailed notices to their MABTS e-mail account before each doctoral due date. Details for rechecking will be stated in the notice
  • Fines will begin the Tuesday after that week with $500 being the maximum fine per term


Things to Remember:
These policies are in place to allow you to use the Library more efficiently and to allow the staff to serve you better:

  • Fines are .20 a day Tuesday through Friday on books from the general collection
  • All pages printed from the computers in the library are $.05/page
  • Photocopies are $.05/page, scanned copies sent to e-mail accounts are free
  • The Library closes to everyone during all chapel services which include Founders' Days. Chapel time is 11 a.m. to 11:45a.m. Tuesday and Thursday
  • Materials being returned by mail need to be insured. This allows for tracking of lost materials
  • As a seminar nears, the Library may have to request materials to be returned for other Doctoral Students to use. Be considerate and make wise use of the Library's books
  • For Doctoral students, completely unable to be on campus, when requesting books please make a list of the books you need and submit it in person or by fax, mail or e-mail. Do not send your entire reading list - 15 book maximum. This is only for students unable to be on campus, not that you will be on campus in a week or so and want us to have your books ready and waiting for you.
