New Inter-Library Loan System

The Texas Tech Law School Library and the University Library are consolidating our inter-library loan/document delivery services.  Beginning now, all law faculty, staff, and students are now required to use the University ILL/Document Delivery Service (http://library.ttu.edu/docdel/).  All users will initially need to set up their accounts using their eRaider, to be able to use the ILL services (see instructions below).

 

You can find links to the new system in a couple of different places.

Viewing Electronic Resources During Server Migration

Here is a tip to help you view Texas Tech University Law Library electronic resources during the server migration.

If you are trying to connect with one of the databases and it acts like it isn’t working (see example below):

REMOVE the EZProxy prefix from the URL and it should work just fine.

Collaborative Commons

Over the summer, the library was very busy shifting our collection on the first floor to other parts of the library.  This change was made because we recognized a need for more group study space.  Since this is the only non-quiet area of the library, students often come here to work on homework and study together.  With the absence of books and bookshelves, we were able to put in more tables and seating for a better group work experience.  collaborative commons, students
