Bureaucracy: A Love Story

Bureaucracy: A Love Story is the spring exhibit in the Special Collections reading room. The exhibit is open to public Monday-Saturday from 8 am – 5 pm and runs January 21-May 8, in Willis Library, 4th floor, room 447.

Discovering the Southwest Metroplex

UNT’s Special Collections department was awarded $164,400 through the Council on Library and Information Resources’ (CLIR) Hidden Collections program for the 2014-2016 project Post-War Industry and Development of the Southwest Metroplex. Hidden collections are those collections that reside within libraries, archives, or cultural heritage institutions; yet, are undiscoverable due to non-existent or inefficient description.
