UNT Libraries Receive $25,000 TexTreasures Grant
The most historically significant buildings in Texas are commemorated with a designation from the Texas Historical Commission as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark. This honor is awarded to historic structures deemed worthy of preservation, and is the highest honor the state bestows upon historic structures in Texas.
UNT Libraries recently received a $25,000 TexTreasures Grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to partner with the Texas Historical Commission to digitize and provide broad public access to 1,775 files related to buildings designated as Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks from five heritage regions in the state. Each of these historic buildings has an application and research file that document the significance and history of these seminal structures along with photographs that illustrate architectural features of the property.
To learn more, see the full article in UNT's InHouse: UNT Libraries, Texas Historical Commission digitizing info on historic landmarks.

Online Holds Now Available
Beginning August 1, 2013 students, faculty, staff and courtesy card holders will be able to place holds online through our catalog for available items. We will deliver items to one of several pickup locations that you may specify when placing your request, and we will hold them for you for up to five days.
To place a hold, simply click the link labeled “Request this item 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 ten holds at a time, and you will be able to manage your hold requests through your account in the online catalog.
Please note that if you log into your catalog account before placing a hold, you can bypass the account authorization on the first screen of the request form. This is helpful if you need to place several holds in one session.
Also note that, in addition to holds for available items, the new request form will also handle recall requests, requests for items at Remote Storage, and requests for items in the Discovery Park Library stacks. This service will replace the Library Materials Delivery Service. Requests for articles may be made through ILLiad.
At this time we will also debut a new self-service hold shelf for items selected for pick up at the Willis 1st floor Pickup shelf.
Please contact Mary Ann Venner if you have any questions.
