Library Orientation

EBSCOhost is a popular database and has some great YouTube videos on how to use the "Advanced Search" option. 

The advanced search skills from EBSCOhost can be applied to using UNT's own catalog.  "Introduction to Library Research" is a great introduction to jump-start your research. 

For students having issues logging onto the Library's system from home, "VPN Login Instructions" provide great help!
