Proxy Card Application

For UMass faculty and staff.

UMass faculty and staff members, graduate students (and any student registered with Disability Services) are eligible to designate and authorize another individual as their proxy for borrowing.   Graduate students may designate ONE individual as their proxy for up to one year.  A proxy card is then issued to allow the proxy to request and check out materials for them. The individual who has authorized the proxy is responsible for all materials charged out on the proxy card.

The UMass Amherst Libraries are committed to protecting each library user's privacy and confidentiality by keeping any personally identifiable information about users private.
