Hello Jill,

I ran into the same issue. After sending the situation up the reporting
chain I received permission to require supervisor contact information on
the borrower's agreement, see attached. Some would be flippant about
providing that information, so I would remind them that the materials are
government property and to come back with the required information.   I
also started cc'ing the supervisor on the second email reminder if
necessary.  I keep track of all reminders, etc. on the spreadsheet I use
for circulation.
