For faculty and staff, we are happy to offer proxy request privileges for your research or teaching assistants to check out materials in your name.
Send the request on departmental letterhead stationery to Cooper Library Circulation, including the student’s name and ID number, your name and ID number and the term (fall, spring, etc.) or use the online request form. You are responsible for all material checked out using the proxy card and will be billed for any material charged to the proxy card and not returned.
