Subject Librarianship at The University of North Texas Libraries

At the UNT Libraries, engagement with the community is fundamental to the work of Subject Librarians. Engagement by Subject Librarians entails a level of sustained, high-quality interactions between the Subject Librarian and patrons. In addition to engagement, subject librarians use strategies such as teaching, providing research services, developing subject collections, understanding digital tools, promoting awareness of scholarly communication issues, and developing programming and outreach activities, as appropriate to their subject area(s).  Subject librarians are a great resource for faculty and can assist with teaching research classes, provide information about library services and resources, assist with requesting library materials, as well as create course guides for classes. ​For more information about subject librarians and to find the subject librarian for your area, please visit our Subject Librarian page

Requesting Library Materials

Do you want materials for research or curriculum support? Faculty may submit purchase requests of books, media, journal subscriptions and other library materials with this form, or consult with a subject librarian to identify items to recommend for addition to the collections of the UNT Libraries. If faculty need class-related materials on reserve, please request them as soon as possible prior to the semester start.

Faculty Delivery Service

The faculty delivery service is designed to provide faculty easier access to library materials and to accommodate research needs. Faculty may request library materials to be delivered to department offices via our Online Holds Service through the library catalog or through ILLiad. More information on the service can be found on the Faculty Delivery Service information page.
