The UNT library catalog contains items in many formats - print books, ebooks, journals, CDs, etc. - that are located in all of the libraries at UNT. Start your search for books at the library homepage using the Books & More tab. The default setting is a Keyword search, which looks for the word(s) you enter in all fields of an item's record: title, author, subject headings, notes and more. The catalog will return items that contain of all of the keywords you entered.
The record for a print book looks like this. Note the name of the library where the book is shelved, the book's call number, whether the book is available.
The record for an ebook looks like this. Click on the ebook's title to find the screen where you connect to the ebook. See the Notes to determine if the ebook can only be used by one person at a time or multiple people. You may have to come back later if someone is already using the ebook. For more tips on using ebooks, visit the Ebooks Help guide.
