Trans Accessible Library Services
This page is intended to highlight library services and facilities that may concern a transgender individual; for example, information privacy, ways in which you can help yourself in person and online, restroom locations, or getting research help. For information about library services in general, please visit the UNT Libraries' Services page. Please contact me, Julie Leuzinger (she/her/hers), if you have questions about a particular library service, I will do my best to describe it to address any concerns you may have in advance.
NOTE: While I have tried to use inclusive language in this guide, if you notice anything that could be improved, please don't hesitate to contact me with suggestions.
Chosen Name and Email
The UNT Library uses information pulled from the UNT system for your library record. To ensure we are using your chosen name, please follow the directions provided from the Pride Alliance regarding Names at UNT.
Gender and Pronouns
All of our written communication no longer refers to gender in honorifics or otherwise and desk staff are trained to use gender neutral pronouns when interacting with students at the Access Services desk. Learn more about personal pronouns at MyPronouns.
Code of Ethics
We protect each library user's right to privacy and confidentiality with respect to information sought or received and resources consulted, borrowed, acquired or transmitted (American Library Association Code of Ethics).
A gender-neutral restroom is located in the southwest corner of the 4th floor of Willis Library and gendered restrooms are located in the corner stairwells on each floor. Please use the restroom in which you feel most comfortable. If you need to find out where gender-neutral restrooms are located in other buildings on campus, please reach out to the Pride Alliance, they are working on a list that will be on their website when complete.
