Proxy Borrowing

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. The proxy should present the form at the Circulation Desk the first time the proxy borrows books for the faculty member.

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.
