Services for Distance Users

If you are a distance student, there are some services that you need to be aware of.  You may request print books from the UNT Libraries collection to be mailed to you. These requests are placed through your ILLIAD account. 

You may also request electronic copies of articles found in journals owned by the UNT Libraries as well as those not owned by the UNT Libraries.

Visit the services for distance learners for more information about services and resources for online students.

InterLibrary Loan for On-Campus Users

On-campus users may request articles, book chapters, or entire books that are not in the UNT Libraries collection, through InterLibrary Loan. Create an ILLIAD account first.  For more information about InterLibrary Loan, visit this page:


TexShare is a program that allows members of participating TexShare libraries to have borrowing privileges from libraries besides their own.  Many libraries in the state of Texas participate in the program, including public and academic libraries.
