A faculty proxy is a person authorized by a faculty member to borrow library materials for the faculty member's use.
- To create a faculty proxy, the faculty member and the designated proxy must complete the online proxy
- The designated proxy must view the Proxy Orientation Tutorial below.
The duration of the proxy authorization may be up to one full academic
year (fall, spring and summer) and must be renewed or a new proxy
assigned upon expiration.
Each faculty member is limited to one proxy per designated period. The
faculty member is responsible for library materials borrowed in his/her
name by the assigned proxy.
Important notice: An
interlibrary loan item can be checked-out only by the person under
whose name the request was made. If the proxy makes the request, only
the proxy can check-out the material; if the faculty member submits the
request under their own name, only the faculty member can check-out the
Requests filled out incorrectly will be returned to the faculty member.
All notifications regarding specific ILL transactions will be addressed
to the faculty member; this includes pickup notices, unclear citations,
cost authorizations, etc. If you have questions, please contact the Interlibrary Loan Office at (415) 422-5385.
