The library also recently announced that it is open for 24 hours a day, five days a week.
Did you know iPods, digital cameras, lighting kits, audio books, DVDs and more are available for checkout? That process will be explained as the Texas Tech University Library hosts the Library Services Fair in the Croslin Room from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday (Sept. 13-14).
The second annual event will also offer an interactive forum for patrons to ask questions, tour the building and see demonstrations about services provided, including the new GroupWorks interactive media area, electronic resources such as the online music database, personal librarians and free digital images.
The fair will include popcorn, prizes, games and giveaways, as well as a chance to complete a library passport for the chance to win additional prizes. Attendees can take their picture, carnival style, with a cutout of the Libraries' 3D animated "Studious Raider Red" and upload to Facebook for even more prizes.
Extensive collections include more than 2.5 million volumes, subscriptions to major periodicals and several hundred specialized, online databases, e-journals and e-libraries.Twitter
