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.

The proposed project involves hosting an ACRL licensed workshop on “Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy” aimed at developing collaborations and learning experiences for students, faculty, and staff interested in improving competencies in these areas or integrating them into their teaching or research.

African American male students have the highest attrition rate. In Fall 2017, a new living/learning community comprised of freshmen males will meet for a one-hour course focused on the African American experience in the United States examined through the lens of African American music.

Supporting sustainable practices is an important goal of the university as outlined in its mission statement and strategic planning. As our Faculty Delivery Service responds to greater demand, we are becoming more aware of the environmental impact our delivery materials (plastic poly mailers) have because they are neither recyclable nor reusable. Faculty members have expressed concerns about the long-tenn use of these materials, and some have opted out of using the service as a result.

The completely redesigned user interface of The Portal to Texas History has encouraged historians, genealogists, and everyday users to research their individual areas of interests. Internal user testing continues to uncover insights on how users interact with the Portal's vast catalog of public records, historical documents and artifacts.
