Interlibrary Loan More information

 

Interlibrary loan services are for current University of Chicago faculty, students, and staff (including Hospital staff).

Proxy borrowers for faculty are also eligible for interlibrary loan services, but they need to request that accounts be set up for them. Information about obtaining accounts is below. Once accounts have been created, faculty proxy borrowers will make requests using specially-created credentials. There is no longer a separate login page for faculty proxy borrowers; access is now provided through the login page used for faculty, students, and staff.
