Proxy Privileges

THE PURPOSE OF THE PROXY PRIVILEGE

The Stanford University Libraries permits the faculty of the University to have proxies who may represent them in the Libraries. This privilege is meant to assist faculty in doing their library research by allowing their designees to use the library in their name. The Library Proxy Card gives the bearer proxy status, i.e. the privilege of charging out library materials in the name of a specified faculty member.


WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE PROXY PRIVILEGE?

The Proxy privilege may be extended to regular Stanford University faculty, to emeritus faculty, to Stanford-appointed Visiting Professors and to academic staff with a provostial teaching appointment. A faculty member may sponsor two proxies. The need for an exception to this should be brought to the attention of the Head of the Privileges Office. If needed, one proxy may serve more than one faculty member.


WHO MAY SERVE AS A PROXY?

Regular Stanford University employees, registered Stanford students and others hired as research assistants are eligible to serve as proxies.


HOW TO APPLY FOR THE PROXY PRIVILEGE

Applications for the Proxy Card may be obtained at the Privileges Office in Green Library. Proxy cards may be issued for periods from one month to one year, at the sponsoring faculty member's discretion.

The Proxy Card Application Form is available in two formats:

(Adobe Acrobat is required for downloading this form. You can download the Adobe Acrobat Reader here.)


LIBRARY USE BY THE PROXY.

The Proxy Card may only be used in support of the faculty member served by the proxy. Sponsoring faculty members are responsible for all materials borrowed in their name. All circulation notices will be sent to the faculty member. Library materials borrowed on the Proxy Card will fall due no later than the expiry date of the proxy privilege. If abuse of the proxy privilege occurs, the privilege will be suspended or revoked, as appropriate, until the matter is resolved.


APPROVED BY THE ACADEMIC COUNCIL COMMITTEE ON LIBRARIES.
May 20, 1976.
