AVS Proxy Borrower Authorization

Proxy Borrowing Privileges:

Effective April 15, 1996, Library and Information Services (LIS) initiated a service to permit authorized proxy borrowing of circulating Library collections and audio visual equipment. Following the procedures outlined below will help you maintain control of your borrowing privileges while taking advantage of this service.

  1. The proxy borrower must be an SIUE student, faculty, or staff member.
  2. To check out an item, the proxy must present his/her own SIUE ID, the borrower's SIUE ID, and the completed AVS Proxy Borrower Authorization form. A new form is required each time a proxy picks up AVS materials. The person authorizing proxy must order media in advance.
  3. The person authorizing a proxy assumes full financial responsibility, including fines and replacement costs, for all items borrowed with his/her ID. AVS will issue a receipt, upon request, when an item is returned.
  4. Proxy borrowing privileges are subject to all circulation policies and may be used for circulating items only.
  5. You can download the AVS Proxy Borrower Authorization form, or contact Campus Services at extension 3030.
  6. AVS will accept a note from the borrower in lieu of an authorization form if it includes all the information required on the form. The borrower's SIUE ID must accompany the note.

    We hope this service will provide you greater flexibility in obtaining LIS resources. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
