Your faculty ID is required when checking out materials. Books circulate to faculty for 16 weeks. Contact your subject librarian for special loans request of reference materials or journals.

AV materials also circulate for varying time periods.  Contact Circulation for more detailed information.

Faculty members may request proxy privileges by placing a Proxy Borrower Authorization form on file at the Circulation Desk. The designated proxy must be an SIUE student or employee. This is especially useful if you have a graduate assistant who will be assisting with a course or research.

HEC Card

Faculty have access to libraries that are members of the Higher Education Consortium (HEC). This includes many of the educational institutions in Missouri such as Washinton University, St. Louis University and more.

Your subject librarian can assist you with retrieving this card.  You may also bring your ID to the Circulation Desk to get a card in person. It is good to also contact the HEC library you will visit to learn the library's policies and hours. HEC Cards must be renewed annually.

View the Interlibrary Loan tab in this guide for information on borrowing materials from other libraries.
