A Multitude of Library Services!

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. Look at this subject librarian list and find the one 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.

How can I get a book/article the Libraries don't have?

Interlibrary Loan Borrowing and Document Delivery Services provide 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. You can contact Access Services if you have questions.

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.

How do I renew a book?

You can renew a book at one of the Libraries' service desks with your current ID card. See the Hours webpage for the service desk contacts and their hours. Or you can renew online by logging into your library catalog account at the Accounts Login page. Please note that music and media items must be renewed in-person at the Music Library and Media Library respectively.
