If you ever decide that you want any other person(s)--such as your secretary, assistant, or a family member--to be able to pick up any received Interlibrary Loan materials at the Kelvin Smith Library Main Service Desk, be sure to list their name(s) in the 'Authorized Users' field when you create your ILLiad patron account. Their name(s) will be listed in the e-mail notifications you receive, and will be printed on the checkout slip inserted in the loaned item. Remember that 'Authorized Users' are required to present a valid photo ID to circulation staff in order to check out materials on your behalf, just as you would in person. (Also, this does not apply to check-out of Kelvin Smith Library or OhioLINK books -- you will need to make this kind of arrangement separately with our Circulation Department; contact directly at 216-368-3506 or firstname.lastname@example.org, for further details.) If your 'Authorized Users' should ever change, please keep their designation up-to-date in your ILLiad account profile. Use the 'Change User Information' option in your ILLiad Main Menu to enter and save any updates.
Please note that this designation does not automatically carry over to other applications or uses of your ILLiad account and your interlibrary loan privileges. You may choose to make private arrangements at your own discretion with your 'Authorized Users', allowing them log-in use of your account in your stead. Remember that you are still directly responsible for the timely return of loans, compensation for loss or damage of loaned materials, adherence to copyright guidelines and restrictions (when requesting articles), receipt of e-mail notifications, and management of your personal contact and university status information.
By including this option in our library's ILLiad services, we hope to extend the added convenience that it offers you.
