Designate a proxy

Library users are able to designate a proxy patron to borrow on their behalf.

This is useful for faculty members who wish to have students borrow items on their accounts or for families who want all their library materials on the same account. Although proxy patrons charge material out using their own library cards, their sponsoring individual assumes all responsibility for material borrowed in their names by their proxy. All email notices and correspondence will be sent to the sponsoring individual, not to their proxy patrons.

To designate a proxy patron, please contact  and provide the following information:

  • your name and V#
  • your proxy's name and V#
  • The date range you would like the proxy privileges to be active.



Please note:
For the protection of your privacy, the Libraries will not disclose to proxy patrons any information regarding the faculty member's account.
