This guide is intended for enrolled in the North Texas Now! dual credit program at UNT Frisco with Profs. Dumaine and Mintin. 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.
We have access to thousands of materials at UNT and there are several different ways to access the various resources we have.
If after using this guide, you still have questions about the UNT Libraries and research, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am one of many librarians that can help you succeed at UNT.
Go to the Library website Accounts Login tab this is where you will go to log in and make requests. Information about ILLiad and the registration form is linked below the login box in the Create your ILLiad account link.
After your account is set up, it will go through our approval process. If your information is filled out correctly, and you don't currently have a block on your Library account, then you'll be ready to request items!
During the current semester services related to electronic delivery are active, but may continue to experience disruptions or delays.
We are doing everything we can to provide access to articles and book chapters electronically. Please submit your requests to Illiad. We will notify you if we are unable to fulfill your request. At any time you may log into your account to see the status of a request or cancel a pending request.
For Distance Learners, the library can retrieve books that you wish to have shipped to you from our General Collection. Please see the Distance Learning Requests page for complete information about eligibility and delivery services.
Distance Learners may have materials delivered to a home address outside of Denton County free-of-charge. To use this service you must first Create an ILLiad Account and select mail as the preferred delivery for loans and "Dist Learning (Home)" as the location.

Services that provide delivery of physical materials may experience disruptions or delays this semester. Books are delivered through USPS Media Mail but if you need a request to be rushed, please let our team know by adding a note to the form at the time of the request.
