University Libraries Assessment

Introduction

The resources of the Texas Tech University Libraries are frequently changing due to the addition of physical materials as well as changes in the availability of electronic resources. Physical materials available include books, journals, CDs, DVDs, videos, slides, photographs, or drawings. Electronic resources include ebooks, journals, databases, and streaming videos. The information presented for each College represents the Libraries' available resources of what students and researchers in the field may possibly use. The numbers presented were updated in July 2022.

In addition to the resources listed below, the University Libraries provide access to databases of open textbooks, such as Open Textbook Library with 1000+ titles, for faculty to consider when adopting textbooks for classes as well as digital collections and ThinkTech (an online publishing and archival services for the Texas Tech community).

For more detailed information on resources and assistance in research for each area, check out the Library's subject Guides.
