Continuity of Library Services

Distance Learning Home Delivery

For Distance Learners, the library can retrieve books that you wish to have shipped to you from our General Collection. Please see the Distance Learning Requests page for complete information about eligibility and delivery services.


How Does it Work?

Distance Learners may have materials delivered to a home address outside of Denton County free-of-charge. To use this service you must first Create an ILLiad Account and select mail as the preferred delivery for loans and "Dist Learning (Home)" as the location. To request materials from our General Collection for home delivery:

  1. Locate the item using the library catalog.
  2. Login to ILLiad and enter the book's information by selecting the Book/Audiovisual from the New Request menu on the left.
  3. Verify the information is correct and submit the request. 
  4. Once the item arrives, confirm the due date, or renew the item as needed from your UNT Library Catalog Account.
  5. A Business Reply Label sticker is included so materials can be returned free of charge at any time before the due date.

How Long Does It Take to Receive Materials?

Services that provide delivery of physical materials may experience disruptions or delays this semester. Books are delivered through USPS Media Mail but if you need a request to be rushed, please let our team know by adding a note to the form at the time of the request.
