- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
Borrowing by proxy provides borrowing privileges in the Georgetown University Library to individuals working for or with a Georgetown faculty member. The faculty member may designate, via the proxy request form, a person who is authorized to borrow materials in his/her name.
Please fill out the proxy form and give it to the designated proxy to bring to the library (this is the recommended procedure). The form can also be faxed to the library (202) 687-1215 or sent as an attachment to email@example.com
The sponsoring faculty member is responsible for all materials borrowed and fines accrued by the proxy. Proxy privileges are issued for no more than one academic year. Proxies may be a research assistant, family member or student. To name a proxy, a faculty member must already be a registered borrower in the Georgetown University Library. Proxy privileges do not extend to the Interlibrary Loan service.
