New Interlibrary Loan System

The UNT Libraries are developing new interlibrary loan web pages. This system will replace the Distance Learning Request Form in January. These new web pages will allow students to track their materials request, receive emails, and there will be fewer forms to fill out.
New tutorials and instruction sessions are being planned in Spring ‘09 to assist faculty and students during this change.


For more information or if you would like to request materials during winter break from the UNT Denton campus please visit http://www.library.unt.edu/circulation/information-for-distance-learning-students.

As always we look forward to a new semester at the UNT Dallas Campus and are here ready to assist you in your educational endeavors.

The Librarian to the rescue...again!

Not only do librarians have their own "action figure," but their own series of action movies as well! Forget the stereotype you have and come into the 21st century. Visit your UNT Dallas Campus "virtual library"--and, on Dec. 7, watch the 3rd movie in "The Librarian" series.

Return of The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice


The world is in danger of being overrun by vampires, and the only person who can prevent it from happening is Flynn Carsen in the third installment of TNT’s Librarian series, starring Noah Wyle. The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice, costarring Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin, sends the bookish hero to New Orleans. The new feature premieres Sunday, December 7, at 8 p.m. Eastern time....Turner Network Television . . .
