The Prescott Memorial Library is open year round to allow students and community members access to its specialized collections. The online services provided through the Library's website allows access even when the building is closed.

More than 390,000 items were circulated from the Library's physical holdings or retrieved through inter-library services and databases.

On average, 800 Louisiana Tech students, faculty, and staff made daily use of the Library's facilities and resources, in person or by remote access, and retrieved 1,200 items per day as they did so.
