During the Spring 2020 Semester, most departments are working remotely. Phone calls will forward to voice mail in many cases, but you may wish to use email as a primary means of communication.
Due to high demand of services and limited availability, expect delays in processing of requests from some units.
The Collection Development Department identifies appropriate scholarly resources, acquires or licenses the use of library materials, and performs collection assessments. Primary activities of the Collection Development Department include negotiation with vendors and publishers for books, periodicals and databases; receipt and processing of gift materials to the Libraries; evaluation of the collections’ strengths for accreditation; identification of needed research resources to support UNT’s wide-ranging curricula; management of ordering and payment systems for materials; and providing technical support for electronic resources.
Working with faculty and librarians, the Collection Development Department strives to provide the best possible research resources for the use of students and faculty.
