Explanation of Access Restrictions
Licensing agreements with publishers of electronic resources often require that access to e-databases, e-journals and other online services be restricted to current TTU students, faculty and staff, and to authorized in-library users. Legal resources such as Lexis-Nexis and Westlaw are restricted to the law school community and may have additional requirements such as a separate login and password.
Except for resources restricted to the law school community, current TTU students, faculty and staff can access our resources while connected to the TTU network (including via Wi-Fi) anywhere on campus, or while using VPN or EZproxy when off campus.
TTU Health Sciences Center is considered to be a separate entity with its own licensed resources. Except for resources restricted to the law school community, Health Sciences Center students and employees, and members of the public, can use most online resources by physically coming to the TTU campus and using a wired connection (not Wi-Fi).
General TTU Community Access
Most of these resources are available to all current students, faculty and staff of Texas Tech University ("the TTU community").
Members of the TTU community who are on campus may access law library databases and journals
Members of the TTU community who are off-campus can access the online resources by using VPN or EZproxy (see below).
Access Provided through University Library
Some resources are provided by the Texas Tech University Library. Most of these resources are available to the TTU community anywhere on campus, and off-campus with VPN or EZproxy. Click here for more information on accessing these databases, and here for the complete list of databases.
Access requires a resource-specific username and password. Please contact a Law Librarian for details at firstname.lastname@example.org, 806-742-3963.
Access is available to anyone for free on the Internet.
Law School Community Access
Access is available only to current students, faculty and staff of the Texas Tech University School of Law, but not to the general TTU community (e.g., Westlaw, Lexis-Nexis).
