E-books can be found through the UNT Catalog.
Click "Books & More." Then, click "E-Books."
You may search for e-books on the following page.
When you find an e-book in the catalog, you will see that the e-book's location is "UNT Online Resources" and the status is "Online." The notes section will say single user, multiple user, or unlimited user, as you can see in the example above. To access the book, click on "Find It."
Once you click "Find It," you will be redirected to the e-book within the book's platform page. This example shows an e-book that has been made available by the platform ProQuest EBL.
When you find an e-book in the catalog, you will see one of three access terms: Single User Access, Multiple User Access, and Unlimited User Access.
If you cannot access an e-book that is Single or Multiple User Access, it means that the book is already in use by the maximum number of users and is not available. Wait 12 hours and try again.
E-books can have many different types of licenses, so in some cases downloading an e-book to a personal device may not be allowed, although reading it online (in a browser) is usually an option.* In some cases, you may only have 5-minutes to browse the book before having to request access, and there may be a delay before a librarian can approve your request.
Similar restrictions, and often even more limiting ones, are common for printing pages and after closing your browser.
*If you encounter an e-book that is not available for online reading or that is not performing as expected, please go to the Library Services Desk in Willis Library, send an e-mail to AskUs@unt.edu or visit https://library.unt.edu/ask-us to report the problem. The library relies on customers to report problems so that the staff can fix them.
