Proxy Authentication Failure

The Indiana University Central Authentication Service has determined that your IU Network ID and password are valid, but your network ID is not affiliated with the IUPUI campus.

Off-campus (remote) access to electronic databases and other online resources licensed by IUPUI University Library is legally restricted to those faculty, staff and students affiliated with the IUPUI campus.

Reference Materials and Journals

Reference Materials

The Reference Collection is a non-circulating collection. This means that most items in the collection will never circulate. Under extraordinary circumstances, a faculty member may pre-arrange to check out an item for 24 hours. (One 24-hour renewal is also allowed.) No one may borrow more than five Reference items at a time.

Request Delivery

IUPUI students, faculty and staff may place online requests to obtain most books located at most other IU libraries without using traditional interlibrary loan methods or filling out a form. This service is called Request Delivery, and is much faster for you as a library user while saving the IU library system money. Most books arrive within 4-7 working days.

Materials from the IUB Law Library, IUB Kinsey Library, CEDIR Library, Archives of Traditional Music Library, Cyclotron Library, University Archives, Lilly Library, and the Bloomington Residence Halls are excluded from Request Delivery. In addition, some materials (i.e. reference books and other non-circulating collections and short term loan collections) from participating libraries may be excluded.

Proxy Cards for IUPUI Faculty

A proxy account will allow your assistant to act on your behalf while conducting business at University Library. We highly recommend that if your assistant is going to be checking out materials for you to have a proxy account setup for them. While University Library does not charge overdue fines for Faculty, this would not apply if your assistant checked out materials for you on their personal account. There are three ways to establish a proxy account for your assistant:

  1. Write a letter on departmental letterhead stating that you want your assistant to have proxy rights on your account. The assistant must bring the letter to the Circulation Desk along with their University ID.


  2. You may come down to the Circulation Desk with the assistant and personally request that a proxy account be created for them. Please make sure you have your University Faculty ID and that the assistant has their University ID.
