Library Services

Check out these library services! Success Awaits at the Library

  1. Graduate students may check out books for the entire semester. Graduate students enrolled in 6000, 7000, or 8000-level courses may reserve a private study carrel for individual study or Library research.

  2. The Document Delivery (interlibrary loan) service pulls books from the stacks and provides materials the Libraries do not own at no charge. Request items via ILLiad.  

  3. The Libraries’ online resources are available from off-campus to all TTU students.

  4. Amazing technology is available including a 3D Animation Lab, hundreds of computers, printing, book/document scanners, and WiFi throughout the Library.

  5. The Digital Media Studio (DMS) loans loans DVDs, audiobooks, SLR cameras, HD camcorders, projectors, and lighting kits. The DMS is on the second floor (east side) of the Library.

Library Spaces

The University Library has different study spaces to address your needs as a graduate student. Choose your preferred research environment from study carrels, group study rooms, collaborative work spaces, and quiet study floors.
