Library Policies

The Gibson D. Lewis Health Science Library is a mission-driven institution that is committed to the support of the teaching, research, service, and patient care activities at UNTHSC. While we will go to great lengths to serve our patrons, we recognize that the smooth functioning of the library rests in part on adherence to a well structured set of operating policies. Our policies are designed to facilitate service with a minimum of constraint and to foster an environment conducive to advanced study and research.
