Proxy Accounts

Main Content

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. You may print the form out and bring it to the circulation desk, but both patron IDs must be presented at the time the proxy is set up OR already copied at the bottom of the form.  Proxy relationships are valid for up to three semesters and can be renewed by completing a new Proxy Form
