Distance Learners

Delivery of Articles and Books

Distance students request library materials through the Document Delivery department using ILLiad. Items are sent electronically or mailed to your designated address via FedEx. When creating the ILLiad account, distance students should select "TTU Distance Patron (Faculty, Staff, and Students)" as their status and give the street address they want to use as their delivery address. Contact the Document Delivery office at libraries.docdel@ttu.edu or (806) 742-2239 for more information.


Electronic Resources

Distance students can access databases and electronic journals from off-campus. Off-campus users are prompted to login using their eRaider username and password. Visit the Off-campus Access Help page for troubleshooting.

Search the Library Catalog to find materials that you want to borrow from the TTU Libraries. 


TexShare Card

Distance students may be able to borrow materials from libraries in their area through the TexShare Card Program. For more information, please visit the TexShare website, or contact the service desk at (806) 742-2265 or libraries.circulation@ttu.edu.
