Proxy Patron Policy

Any Marymount faculty, administrator, or staff may arrange for a library proxy to pick up and charge out items on his or her behalf from a Marymount University library location.
 
ELIGIBILITY
The proxy must be a currently enrolled Marymount undergraduate or graduate student or a currently employed staff or faculty member. A designated library proxy may check out materials using his or her own BlueCard or other photo identification directly to the faculty/staff account (sponsor patron). A library proxy has no direct access to the faculty/staff account; all Marymount and WRLC materials will be charged to that account.
 
BORROWING POLICIES
All circulation policies will apply. The loan period, due date, and eligible materials are determined according to the borrower’s status (faculty or staff). The Marymount faculty, administrator, or staff borrower will have access to full privileges, including Marymount library, Consortium, and Interlibrary loans. The borrower will be responsible for all items checked out to his or her account, including fines and fees, replacement charges, and holds and recalls for materials.
 
Please note: ALADIN does not allow for a proxy patron to make on-line requests for Consortium, Interlibrary Loan, or other materials without the use of the borrower’s own name and library barcode or ID number.
 
TO REQUEST PROXY BORROWING
To obtain proxy borrowing, the faculty or staff member must complete and sign an authorization form. The library will add up to two proxy patrons on each account. Proxy privileges may be valid for one or more semesters or for a specified time period.
 
DISABILITY ACCOMODATION
 
Students who may need a proxy for a disability accommodation should contact the Office of Disability Support Services. The loan period, due date, and eligible materials are determined according to the borrower’s status (undergraduate or graduate). The borrower is responsible for all items checked out to his or her account, including fines and fees, replacement charges, and holds and recalls for materials.
