Visiting Scholars & Research Associates

Visiting scholars and other department researchers can borrow materials from IIT libraries and I-Share, a statewide consortium of dozens of academic libraries.

To apply for these privileges, the Dean, Director, or Department Chair must send an email to from his or her IIT email account requesting a visiting scholar account. The email must include the following information about the researcher:

  • Full name
  • Portal username
  • Banner CWID
  • Home address
  • email address
  • phone number
  • Department affiliation
  • Start date of appointment
  • End date of appointment

The request of a visiting scholar account denotes acceptance of the Paul V. Galvin Library's circulation policies and procedures, including returning borrowed material on time. Fines or replacement costs incurred will be paid by the patron or the department.

Once the library account has been activated, visiting scholars may also request materials through interlibrary loan by creating an account in MyILL.
