On-Campus Research Assistance

Go to the library service desk located on the 3rd floor of the Student Center to request research assistance. A library staff member will work with you at the Research Assistance/Instructional computer.

There is no need to schedule an appointment with a librarian while on campus during normal library operating hours.

PLEASE NOTE: The library's physical location is currently closed due to Covid-19. 

Off-Campus (Remote) Research Assistance

Schedule a meeting with a library staff member through Microsoft Teams. Library staff can work with you to setup a time convenient to you during our remote hours of operation.

During the meeting, library staff will share their computer screen as they explore the library's electronic resources.

All UNT Dallas users have access to MS Teams through their Office 365 institutional email account.  Either the online or desktop version of MS Teams may be used.

Library Circulation Collection

The UNT Dallas Library includes a growing collection of circulating books and media (DVD and VHS) that may be borrowed.  Users may search and place holds on items using the library catalog.

PLEASE NOTE:  Access to the physical book and media collection is closed due to Covid-19 restrictions.  However, access will be restored on a limited basis when permissible.  The Library will send information when access to the book collection is safely restored.

Circulation Privileges

Item Checkout

Undergraduate students may borrow most circulating books for 3 weeks and media items for three days.

Renewing Items

Borrowed items may be renewed either in person or online through your personal library account. Users may not renew items if they have library fines, overdue items, or if the item is on hold for another user.

Renewing Items

Checked out items may be returned to the library service desk located on the 3rd floor of the Student Center during library operating hours.

Please contact the library through email or phone if you need assistance with returning items to the library.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, hold any checked-our library books and media items until further notice.  All fines and fees will be waived.

Paying Fines

Please contact the library either by email or phone if you have a question about a fine on your library account.

Textbook Course Reserves

Textbook course reserves are a collection of textbooks and media items that may be borrowed for a short period of time and must remain on campus.

  • Most books or media items may be checked out for a 3-hour period.
  • You may scan items using the library digital book scanner.  Please note that copyright restrictions limit the total amount (i.e. pages/chapters) that may be scanned.
  • Search the Course Reserve Materials section of the Library Catalog or email library staff to determine if a textbook is available.
  • All scanned pages/chapters will be sent to your UNT Dallas email address.

PLEASE NOTE: The Textbook Course Reserve is currently closed due to Covid-19.  Use the Request a Book/Article form or email the library to request a scanned copy of needed pages/chapters.  All scanning requests are subject to copyright restrictions.

Printing and Scanning

Library Printer

The library photocopy machine allows users to print or release print jobs by entering their EUID/password or by scanning your student ID badge.

Library Digital Scanner

The library digital scanner is located at the library service desk. You may have PDF files of book scans sent to you as an email attachment to your UNT Dallas email address or transferred to your Microsoft One Drive account.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to copyright restrictions, only a limited number of pages/chapters may be scanned of any book.  However, there are no limitations on using the scanner to scan your personal notes.

Texshare Card

Students may receive a Texshare card that allows them to borrow items (such as books or DVDs) from participating libraries throughout the state of Texas.  Students with library fines or overdue library items are not eligible for a Texshare card.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19, the Texshare card program has been suspended.  When service is restored, Texshare cards may be requested in the library.
