Certain borrowers may designate another person or persons as their proxy, who may check out library materials in their name. A faculty member or administrator may designate a student assistant as a proxy; a faculty member or administrator may request a proxy authorization for a spouse or child; or a disabled student or staff member may have a helper designated by Disability Services as a proxy.
In all these cases the person who signs for the proxy will be responsible for all items checked out under the proxy arrangement. Any fines or replacement fees are the sole responsibility of the person who fills out the proxy form, and not the proxy holder. This must be clearly understood by the person who fills the proxy application form.
Every time your proxy presents his or her ID to check out items, he or she will be asked by the desk attendant if these are for his or her own personal use or for you.
When you have a proxy user, you should make an effort to check your account from time to time to see what has been borrowed in your name. To view your record, Login to the libraries' website, and click "My Books" under the login box for a current list of items checked out to you.
Please alert the circulation department as soon as possible if your proxy arrangement changes for any reason. If you feel that your proxy holder is abusing your account, you should also alert the Circulation Department at (405)325-3341 as soon as possible so we can remove your proxy holder from your account.
Proxy arrangements may be set up by calling (405)325-3341, by completing the web form, or by visiting the Circulation Desk at Bizzell or any branch library.
