How to Request Books Owned by the UNT Libraries

Requesting books may be done through our Online Holds service. To place a hold through the library online catalog, simply click the link labeled “Request for pickup” that you will see in catalog records and search results for requestable items. This link will take you to a form that will ask for your EUID and password, which item you want to request, and the pickup location. You will be able to place up to 25 holds at a time, and you will be able to manage your hold requests through your account on the library website.

Requests are processed within 48 hours if the items are available. Patrons are notified by email when the items are available for pick up.

  • Items available for pickup will be at the requested service desk for 7 days from the time of notification.
  • Items available for pickup at the Media Library Service Desk are available for 3 days from the time of notification.

Items that are checked out or not available may be requested through Interlibrary loan.
