ILL Proxy Service

Faculty and Staff must arrange a proxy pickup directly with an ILL staff member. When the proxy arrives to the Information & Assistance desk to pick up an ILL item, they must present their UR ID and the desk staff will confirm proxy status. Proxy name will be written to the ILL item to be picked up. Each item must be handled individually.
