Research Procedures

We would love for you to visit us!

We are located in the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library, on the campus of Texas Tech University.

CLICK HERE for a map and directions.

Our materials are available to the public, but they are non-circulating. To view any part of our collections, you must visit the Holden Reading Room during the operating hours of the Southwest Collection. CLICK HERE for schedule.

Please let us know when you will be coming to our facilities. We do our best to accommodate all researchers, and we need time to retrieve the materials you are interested in (and equipment with which to view them). This will allow you maximal time during your visit for research. If you will be traveling to the Southwest Collection, send us an email and let us know of your interests.
