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. Proxies do not need have official affiliation with Georgetown.

  • Please fill out the proxy form and submit. We will email a confirmation of receipt and processing.
  • To borrow onto faculty account the proxy need present their Georgetown GOCard or, if not affiliated with Georgetown a drivers license or passport, and tell attendant at Circ Desk s/he is a proxy for a faculty member.
  • Books will be charged to a proxy account.

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.  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.
