Congratulations to the UNT Digital Projects Unit on the release earlier this year of the UNT Digital Library, an exciting entity that centralizes all of the library’s digital collections in a unified repository.

The UNT Digital Library builds on work done by the Digital Projects Unit in creating a rapid development framework for digital libraries that was used in the development of the updated Portal to Texas History, released in 2009. This project uses the same framework and applies it to the libraries’ other collections, creating a unified space for providing access to content.

Among the institutional groups hosting content within the UNT Digital Library are the UNT Press, the UNT Music Library, and the UNT Libraries. The repository holds everything from electronic theses and dissertations to original performances and artwork, as well historical posters, rare books, and journals.

The UNT Digital Library was built using all open-source components and open, standards-based protocols, and most of its contents are freely available to the public.
