The Texas Tech Law Library has redesigned the library home page to provide better service for our patrons. There are some changes to the features from the older site, but overall the site is easier to navigate and more organized. The Law Library faculty and staff will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.
On the top gray bar, there are several options that show drop down menus once they are clicked. The first is simply the link to the Law Library home page.
The second is the Information drop down menu. This menu discusses information directly about the Law Library such as the Floor plans, Location Guide, Law Library Blog and more.
The third option on the gray bar is the Research and Reference menu. This menu is the location that the links to all the information services that the library provides such as a link to the Electronic Databases, links to Westlaw, Lexis Advance, Bloomberg Law, and to the West Academic Study Aids. You can find a great deal of information commonly used for research and assignments in this link.
Below the gray bar is the Texas Tech Law Library Catalog search bar. Entering keywords or terms here will take students to the library catalog to begin their search. Clicking on the advanced search box will automatically create a new window to the Law Library Catalog’s advanced search function.
Below the catalog search is a red bar with links directing different categories of people to click the links. Students will find the most useful information in the Student Link. Clicking the Student link will open a new window to a Student Services LibGuide that discusses in depth each type of service that the Law Library and the Librarians offer students.
Finally, at the bottom of the page and below the red bar, this section offers a variety of useful information and links to patrons. This area of the new homepage offers a direct link to the Law Library Blog, The Reporter, and the Law Library Newsletter. Additionally, you will find the Library Hours and how to contact the different departments of the library. Quick links gives links to various parts of the Library website and catalog and also the Law Library social media webpages, as well as the new home for the Law Library’s Noise Report.
