How can I get a printed copy of an entire document, book, or map?

Currently we do not provide reprints or copies of these types of materials. Some printed items are readily available for purchase through governmental or commercial vendors:

  • UNT Press Books - follow any of the links under "Purchase a Copy" near the bottom of the book's descriptive item record in our system.
  • UNT Theses and Dissertations - order through the ProQuest service.

For other types of materials, we suggest that you contact the contributing partner for information about whether copies may be available for a particular item.

How do I find out which partner contributed an item?

In our system, every item's record provides the name of the partner that contributed the item. Click on "Who" in the left sidebar of the item record. You will see a "Provided By" box on the right side of the screen. At the bottom of the box, click "About" to go to a full description and contact information for the partner.
