Our current library collection is over 90% electronic due to the needs/requests of our students and faculty and our building space is primarily devoted to student study areas. Our space for physical collections is quite small and mostly consists of textbooks, test preparatory materials and anatomical models. We carefully utilize our space and financial resources to assist our students. They are our primary patrons and their needs drive our decision-making processes.

The University Archives serve as the institutional memory of the UNT HSC and plays a vital role in the management of the institution’s evidentiary documents and resources in all formats. A strong archive is an integral component of, and an active partner to any thriving and accountable institution.
