A proxy relationship enables one person to pick up and check out library materials for someone else using the latter's SIU ID number. All valid patrons may set up a proxy relationship with another valid patron. Currently enrolled students, currently employed faculty and staff, retired faculty and staff and Courtesy Card patrons are eligible.
Patrons wishing to set up a proxy must complete a form and present it, their ID and the ID of their proxy at the Circulation Desk. Proxy relationships are valid for up to three semester and can be renewed by completing a new form.
