How do I register to access items on this site?

There is no registration on our system. Most items in the UNT Digital Library are available via the Internet without any sort of login. We do have a few items such as selected theses and dissertations or recordings of UNT recitals that require users to be current members of the UNT community. When you try to open those items from off-campus, the system will provide a prompt. If you are affiliated with UNT, you can log in at the prompt with your EUID and password. We are sorry, but if you are not a UNT student, staff, or faculty member, you will not have access to any items labeled as "Restricted to the UNT Community."

Can you tell me the value of an item in my collection?

Quite often we receive questions about the value of a historical item belonging to a personal collection. Unfortunately, we cannot provide appraisal information; however, we can recommend that you visit the Smithsonian Institution's FAQ: Appraisals of Objects, which provides an overview on identifying and valuing collectible objects. The page includes links to several American appraisal organizations and a reference list of auction galleries and helpful books and magazines.
