North Texas Now @ UNT Frisco

This is a course page for the dual credit North Texas Now @ UNT Frisco

Welcome to the UNT Libraries!

This guide is intended for enrolled in the North Texas Now! dual credit program at UNT Frisco. This guide will provide you with various methods to access academic research materials and make the most of the UNT Libraries.

As students enrolled in a program at UNT Frisco, you are considered distance learners. This means you can have library materials mailed to your address on file with the UNT. To request materials to be mailed to you, you will need to create an account with ILLiad. Your ILLiad account will give you access to services like Interlibrary Loan, delivery, and e-delivery. You can request both physical items like books and pdf copies of book chapters or articles. See the information on this page to create an account and use our distance learner services.

What else is on this guide?

We have access to thousands of materials at UNT and there are several different ways to access the various resources we have.

  • The Library Resources 101 page cover basics of using the library homepage.
  • The Database page introduces you to the concept of databases and provides recommendations on how to get started in this important accept of academic research.
  • The Newspapers page discusses ways to find news content in the library collections. 
  • The Primary Source page provides information on three of our primary source collection including: government document, special collections, and the Portal to Texas History.
  • The Chicago Manual of Style page covers the Chicago citation methods which you will use to cite your sources (to avoid plagiarism).
  • Finally, the Troubleshooting Online Access page provide some suggestions on how to solve access issues (because they do happen).

If after using this guide, you still have questions about the UNT Libraries and research, you can email the subject librarian connected to your duel credit course. The AskUs service can also help you with library information question, basic research questions, or connect you to a librarian who can help you.
