Access Services

Access Services

These are library services that give you access to books, journal articles, and other library items. In other words, Access Services get the materials you need into your hands, whether you're an on-campus or online student. This section introduces you to a few of the services; visit Services for more information.

Check Out Materials

Many books and journals can be checked out of the Libraries for a period of time for your convenience. See the Hours webpage for the times when service desks are open and their contact information. Visit Check Out Materials for checkout periods and other details.

Renew Your Materials

You can renew library materials online through your Discover catalog account. See the left-hand login on the Accounts Login page. Or you can renew items in-person at one of the Libraries' service desks - see the Hours page for available times. Visit Renew Your Materials for details and policies.

Materials Delivery Service

Need a book or journal that is at a different UNT library or in Remote Storage? For books and bound journals, place online holds on titles through the library catalog; the item will be delivered to the UNT library of your choice in 24 hours on weekdays. For articles, make the request through your ILLiad account - go to Accounts Login to sign in.

Interlibrary Loan Service

Need a journal article, book chapter, book or another source that's not at the UNT Libraries? Our Interlibrary Loan Service will contact other libraries and get the material you need free of charge. You need to create an ILLiad account on the Accounts Login page to start submitting your requests.

How can I get help from a librarian assigned to my class or dept?

Librarians assigned to a particular class or department are called subject librarians. Search for a department in this directory and find the librarian assigned to it.. You can contact the librarian by phone or email and make an appointment for individual assistance. Don't be shy - librarians love to meet with students, faculty and staff and help them with their research and library questions.

Laptops are available for checkout at the Willis, Sycamore Library and Discovery Park Libraries. The laptops check out for 4 hours and can be taken outside the Libraries. Please see the laptop checkout details before using this service.

Need to print/copy/scan?
