Architecture Library

The Architecture Library is located on the 8th and 9th floor of the Architecture building. Entry and exit of the library is located on the 9th floor. There is no entrance or exit from the 8th Floor, nor wheelchair access between either floor. Patrons in need of accessibility accommodation should speak to a staff member at the 9th floor service desk.

Southwest Collection / Special Collections Library

The Southwest collection houses a gallery along the north side of the building displaying the Southwest Collection, as well as other units of the University Library, which have offices in the facility. Those offices include the University Archives, the Archive of the Vietnam Conflict, and the Library's Rare Books Collection. Additionally, the facility is the home for editorial offices of the West Texas Historical Association and its annual yearbook. Behind the offices are the non-public areas of the facility where documents and materials are processed. The building also has a second floor, which houses the stacks area.

University Library

The Texas Tech University Library is a multi-level building housing a variety of facilities. Above ground, the Library has 3 floors on its east side and 7 floors on its west. The basement is unique, as only the eastern potion is managed by the University Libraries. The western section, the Advanced Technology Learning Center (ATLC), is managed by TTU IT Technology Support. Each of the two sides of the library are serviced by their own elevators, catering to either the eastern or western half. There is no way to cross between sides above the Ground Floor. Additionally, there is no wheelchair access between sides in the basement.
