Texas Tech University Press Now Part of University Library

From The Daily Toreador:

Since its inception in 1971, the Texas Tech University Press has been an integral part of scholarly publication in West Texas. This summer, the press merged and became a part of Tech University Libraries.

The merger has had other benefits, as well, Burkholder said. The warehouse of the press, currently in Chicago, will be transferred to Tech.
