Faculty wishing to initiate the proxy authorization should fill out the proxy agreement form and turn it in at one of the following service desks:
  • Sterling Memorial Library
  • Divinity Library
  • Marx Science and Social Science Library
Faculty may designate up to two research assistants per semester to use the proxy service.  This proxy authorization will permit faculty to send an assistant to pick up library materials to be used by the faculty member.
Proxies may not use this service to check out library materials for their own personal use.
Faculty members are personally responsible for any charges assessed to their account for library materials damaged or lost while checked out under this proxy service.
