This guide summarizes uses, updates, and guidance for Resource Sharing/ILL at Boatwright Library and Parsons Music Library at the University of Richmond.

Resource Sharing Operations


Beginning August 1st, 2021: Resource Sharing book pick ups for faculty, staff and student will be at the INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE DESK at Boatwright Library. You will need your UR ID for materials pick-up. 

Summer 2021: Resource Sharing at UR is operating as close to usual as possible. As we go into autumn 2021 we hope to continue this. Throughout last year’s remote existence, the Resource Sharing Department continued to fill as many requests as possible both at the local, state, and national level. Many of our library lenders remain closed, operate remotely, are understaffed, and are working in less than ideal circumstances. Due to these issues, wait times will likely be longer than our patrons are used to and hard to find items will be even more rare. Thank you for continuing to be understanding!

A few reminders:

  • Materials that we have borrowed need to be returned to us in a timely manner, ILLIAD will indicate due dates and produce reminders. Future borrowing privileges depend on our returning materials to lending libraries by their due dates.
  • Any ordered physical material can be picked up outside or at Boatwright Library and patrons will be alerted when it is there. PDF scans of all electronic items are sent to patrons’ UR emails. 
  • Resource Sharing staff is operating on a staggered in person/remote schedule continuing in summer 2021. If you have questions we recommend using email:

DUE DATES/BLOCKS IN ILLIAD: Materials are now due as marked on the material or on your ILLiad account. After three overdue notices you may be blocked from ordering more materials in ILLiad until items are returned. Please help us maintain our borrowing and lending relationships by returning overdue material!
