The University of North Texas Libraries are proud to unveil Mean Green Mapped!

Mean Green Mapped is an interactive web map utilizing GIS software to illustrate UNT’s history through photographs and other media. Using historic maps, aerials and photographs, we seek to generate interest in the resources available at UNT Libraries and to commemorate UNT’s 125 years of service to students and community. 

Our libraries are helping students succeed at UNT by offering writing lab and subject specific tutoring this semester in Willis Library.

The first week of October is upon us, and so is National Fossil Day. 

The National Park Service and the American Geosciences Institute host the National Fossil Day festivities each year, and that inspired us to dive into our UNT Libraries bookshelves to find out what kind of fossilized, dino-riffic resources we have available.

Lots, as it turns out! So join us as we dive into some rocks, bones, and books.
