Library launches money-saving app

Book Raider appThe University Library has launched Book Raider, a free app for Android and iOS devices that allows users to scan the barcode of any book to determine its availability within the Library.


This money-saving app will allow Texas Tech users to check out rather than purchase books, and includes the option to request a book through Document Delivery if it’s not within the Libraries’ holdings.

As a newly released app, we value your feedback and patience as we continue to improve the service. Please send any questions or comments to


Development of the app is funded by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services through a grant to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
