To participate in the Libraries' graduate assistant program, you must be a full-time graduate student. We welcome a variety of majors into the program, but some jobs may require specific subject specialties. See individual position descriptions for additional required qualifications or training.

First, apply to the Libraries' graduate assistant program by providing the following documents.  Submit these documents only once.  We will keep them on file. 

  • Your resume
  • A current, original, official transcript
  • Three letters of recommendation about your professional capabilities

If you wish to claim veteran's preference, you should also submit a Veterans Self-Identification form along with applicable documentation such as your DD214.  For veteran's forms please see "How do I submit veteran's preference information?" at UNT System Human Resources' How to apply for a job page.

Then, for each position that interests you, submit:

  • A cover letter describing your qualifications. Write one letter for each position. Clearly state the position title in each letter.
