The UNT Libraries have so many services for you that they can't all be listed here. Some of the most commonly requested services are described on this page. Please visit the Services webpage to see our full menu of services.
Librarians assigned to a particular class or department are called subject librarians. Look at this list of departments and find the librarian assigned to the dept offering your course (ENGL = English, BIOL = Biology) or to your major. You can contact the subject 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.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is the service that provides free delivery of books, articles, dissertation/theses which the UNT Libraries don't have. You must establish an ILLiad account before making your first ILL request. It takes 5 minutes or less to complete the ILLiad registration and enter your request.
Delivery of books generally takes 1 to 2 weeks; dissertations/theses can take up to 6 weeks. Articles are usually sent in electronic form to your ILLiad account and arrive in approximately 7 days.
You can renew a book at one of the Libraries' service desks with your current ID card. Or you can renew online by logging into your library catalog account. Please note that music and media items must be renewed in-person at the Music Library and Media Library respectively.
