Computers & Wireless Access

The TTU Libraries has a plethora of resources available to help foster the Texas Tech community’s use of technology both inside and outside the library. Note also that the Advanced Technology Learning Center (ATLC) and the Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center (TLPDC) have computing resources housed in the University Library building.

Public Computers

We own and maintain more than two hundred computers for students, faculty, and the public to use. These computers have a wide variety of software installed to help facilitate library research.
