Proxy services

K-State students, staff and faculty may authorize a currently enrolled student or K-State staff member to borrow library materials for them. The proxy uses their own ID to check out materials and notifies the help desk staff to check out the materials under the proxy relationship. The materials will be checked out to the proper account with a note of who checked the material out.

  • Name and ID number of the individual requesting a proxy.
