Miscellaneous Texas Tech publications are also currently being digitized and added online on our DSpace repository. Also now available is an index to the University Daily Newspaper from 1995-2001.
The Texas Tech University Archives participated in the Train to Share grant project to digitize collections pertaining to Texas Energy Resources. The materials include photographs and oral history interviews from various collections found within the holdings of the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.
