Yes, if the department has established a group account in the Pharos copy/print payment system. The department must provide you with the password. Fill out the interdepartmental transfer for copy / print account (pdf) form to create an account or add credit to an existing account.
The answer is generally no. The person to whom the materials are being checked out must be present. Faculty members may authorize a proxy, an assistant who can check out items to the faculty member's account, by filling out a proxy account authorization (pdf) form.
Yes, with some restrictions. Originals and most currently licensed resources can be placed on reserve. Unlicensed photocopies or electronic copies can be used only once under the Fair Use exemption of the copyright law. Subsequent uses require permission from the publisher and possible royalty payments. Library staff can assist with obtaining permissions and any royalty payments will be passed through to the department. The costs will vary according to the work, the duration of the use, and the number of students in the class.
Usually this will be dependent on the program you are printing from. For most MS Office applications, like Word and PowerPoint, on a PC you will want to check "Printer Properties" from the print screen (where you select the printer). Go to the "Finishing" tab and be sure that 2-sided printing is selected as the style.
On a Mac, use Command + P to call up the print menu. Where "Copies & Pages" is showing, select "Layout." Beside the "Two-Sided" option, be sure you have long-edge binding or short-edge binding selected depending on your preference.
Call 817-735-2556 or submit a request online through the Room Scheduling Office (available only on the UNTHSC network). Only large group study rooms can be reserved. Other study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis to UNTHSC students, faculty, and staff members.
On a Mac, hit "Command + P" to bring up printer options. Select "Layout" next to "Copies and Pages." Next to "Pages per Sheet" select the number of slides you want per page. When you choose to print ("File -> Print" or "CTRL + P") on a PC, one of the options usually defaults to "Full Page Slides." Select that option and choose the number of slides you want on one page.
You may copy a single article from a given periodical issue or one book chapter. These limits are based on the Model Policy of the American Library Association and national guidelines such as the 1996 Conference on Educational and Library Fair Use (CONFU). We may be able to provide a link to licensed materials or offer another solution. In no case can a copy of an entire in-copyright work be used for reserve without permission from the copyright owner. Before making copies please check to see if the library has the item available in print or electronically.
Yes. Students, faculty, and staff members can check out up to 50 items. Other patrons are limited to 5 or 10 items depending on category. All patrons are limited to 5 reserve items and 5 test preparation books at one time. See borrowing policies for more information.
UNTHSC students, faculty, and staff members may use the computer lab on Level 2 (Room 225) when it is not reserved for a class. The computers outside of Room 225 are available to UNTHSC patrons at all times. Please keep your ID badge visible to library staff members. Visitors can sign up at the service desk for a two-hour session on one of the designated Health Information Station computers. The labs on Level 4 (Rooms 400 and 410) are dedicated training facilities and are not open for general use.
Reserves are materials chosen by an instructor to supplement their courses. Reserves can be physical materials or electronic content. Physical items are given reserve status to ensure that all members of the class can use them within a limited period of time. Some reserves are high-use or theft-prone materials and are given reserve status by the library staff.
The fine is 50 cents per day for regular circulating items. This increases to $1 per day for overdue items that have been recalled. Fines for reserve materials are $1 per hour and fines for Test Preparation books are $5 per day. See borrowing policies for more information.
Copyright gives authors and other creators certain rights under federal law. There are some exemptions for libraries and for educational uses, but the university must operate within their boundaries or pay the copyright holders to use their work. Copyright law controls the use of copies for reserves, as well as copies that library staff members make to fulfill document delivery or interlibrary loan requests. Originals, whether owned by the library or by the instructor, can circulate freely. Increasingly, though, information resources are provided electronically. Our use of them is typically controlled not by copyright law, but by our license agreements with individual publishers and content aggregators. The library has the responsibility to monitor and to abide by these legal agreements. We are happy to help you make the best decisions regarding copyright, and can assist you in obtaining rights to use materials.
Be sure you selected one of the Pharos printers to print to, rather than PDF or a different printer you might have available on your computer. Make sure you entered your EUID in the Pharos popup box. Your EUID is usually your initials plus four numbers. After entering your EUID, be sure you clicked “Print” rather than "Cancel" on the popup box. You also could have entered your EUID incorrectly.
If you access e-journals through our website from off-campus you will be asked to log in with your UNTHSC network username and password. You may receive an error message when you try to log in and access an e-journal. We receive the error message too and within 1 business day we will make the needed updates and your journal should be accessible. Please contact the Library Research Services Office at 817-735-2070 if you have questions or need assistance.
You will be prompted only once to create an account for requesting and receiving articles and other materials. Once you have an account you will be able to place requests quickly and easily from selected databases, track the progress of your current requests, download recent articles received, and review your entire request history.
The current version of Mac has had some issues with Pharos. We recently upgraded to a later version of Pharos which hopefully will resolve these issues. Restarting your Mac may be the best solution to this problem. Other problems that can prevent printing include the computer not being connected to the network.
