Resource Sharing/ILL at University of Richmond Libraries : Home

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


Summer 2023: Normal operations. 

  • UR Owned Materials should be requested here: Item Retrieval Services
  • 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!
  • Currently we do not allow proxy accounts for ILLiad users. For item security and to ensure that you get the items you need, you must pick items up yourself in-person at the Boatwright Information and Assistance Desk.
  • If you need another person to pick an item up on your behalf, such as a student administrative employee, colleague, or family member, you MUST receive approval ahead of time by emailing with the name of the person who will be picking up your item. This must be done for each item you are having picked up. Items will not be released to the person picking up unless this name is on file.
