About Services

Lewis Library provides a wide variety of services and resources to support UNTHSC faculty and staff members in their teaching, research, and patient care activities. For additional services, contact your liaison librarian or the Reference Office (LIB-222, 817-735-2070).  If you teach distance education courses, see For Distance Faculty for a description of the special services available.

Course Reserves

The Library can provide access to course reserve readings, whether online or in print, using our collections and/or materials supplied by the instructor. This service includes copyright evaluation and securing permissions when needed. See Course Reserves for more information.  

Document Delivery

Our Document Delivery service can save your time by retrieving the literature that you need, both from our collections and from those of other libraries. We can deliver it in several different ways, electronically or on paper. There is a nominal fee for this service. See Document Delivery/Interlibrary Loan for more information.


Librarians are available to deliver instruction as part of your course curriculum, either in your classroom or in the Library. Library-sponsored classes on popular research tools are offered periodically, and individual instruction is available upon request. See Library Instruction for more information.

NIH Open Access Policy Compliance

See NIH Open Access Support to help you navigate the article submission process. We can provide individual assistance as needed.

Purchase Requests

Whenever possible, the Library adds to its collections the books and media items requested by faculty members for their teaching and research needs. Faculty recommendations are also welcomed for larger purchases such as research databases and e-book collections. Use the Library Purchase Request form to submit a recommendation.

Reference & Research

Librarians are available to assist you in searching the literature in your field. We also can conduct research for you and deliver citations and abstracts to meet your information need. See Reference Services for more information.

Scholarly Repository

The Library manages the UNTHSC Scholarly Repository, giving our researchers worldwide visibility. We invite you to submit both published and unpublished works. There is no charge for processing or hosting your materials, and authors get monthly usage reports on their contributions.

UNTHSC Bibliography

Every year the Library publishes the Bibliography of Publications, a bibliography of the published works of UNTHSC authors. This can be a useful source for accurate citations of your publications.
