Books flying into Computer

The Texas Tech University Libraries wants anyone enrolled in the TTU Worldwide eLearning (Online & Distance Learning) programs to have complete access to all of the library resources, and utlize all of the library services that are offered.   

Each subject of study has a personal librarian assign to the subject. To locate your personal librarian, use the box labeled Subjects & Librarians to the left, browsing by subject or librarian.

  • help you to locate and evaluate resources
  • help you locate the database for your research
