To Check Out an ILL Item:
Note: Please do not accept ILL books from other Emory Libraries. Patrons must return ILL items to the same Emory Library where they picked up the item.
A separate ILL Proxy account is required for patrons to place ILL requests on behalf of faculty. Faculty can request an ILL Proxy account by emailing email@example.com and providing the proxy's name & email address.
However, ILL checkouts do not require an ILL Proxy account. Anyone may check out an ILL item on behalf of a faculty member, since there's no card-swipe portion of the ILL checkout workflow. If someone else knows that there's an ILL item waiting for pickup, we assume that they are authorized to check it out.
The ILL office also manages Emory's scanning service for patrons. This service allows current Emory students, staff, and faculty to request a scan of a single chapter or article from most Emory-owned books or journal issues; the request feature is built into Library Search. Some Emory libraries only provide this service to faculty and staff, so availability may be limited.
The scanning service is also known as: Request Article or Chapter / Electronic Document Delivery / Document Delivery
