Given the mandate of Texas Tech University to expand its research mission, Texas Tech University Libraries developed new library services through the Book Raider project that allows patrons to use mobile apps to check library holdings and to order materials through interlibrary loan. Library literature shows an increasing desire among patrons to use this type of technology and suggests an open door exists for librarians to create these new modes of access and delivery. Book Raider, a collaborative project of several departments of Texas Tech University Libraries, involved the development of various types of apps across several technology platforms, a project that grows in popularity among students and faculty of the University.
