Resource Delivery Services

Resource Delivery is the team within the Access and Discovery Department that provides resource sharing through the delivery of library materials to its UTA patrons and to other libraries.

The Resource Delivery team seeks to provide unique primary and secondary information to support the research, teaching and publishing initiatives of UT Arlington. Materials can be requested 24/7. It is our goal to provide access to materials from anywhere in the world in the shortest possible time, at the lowest cost and best quality.

Resource Delivery consists of the following services:


  • ill-3.jpg
