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.
