Proxy services for faculty

K-State faculty members 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 tells the help desk staff to charge the materials under the proxy relationship. The materials will be charged to the faculty member's account with a note of who checked the material out.

 

How to request a library proxy

Faculty members can request a library proxy by submitting a letter of authorization on departmental stationary. The letter must contain the following information:

  • Proxy's name and ID number
  • Faculty member's name and ID number
  • Dates for which the proxy is authorized
  • Expressed statement of responsibility
  • Signature of the faculty member

Letters can be delivered to the Hale Library Help Desk on the 2nd floor or mailed to Library User Services, 1117 Mid-Campus Drive North, Manhattan, KS 66506. If you have questions about proxy services please call (785) 532-3014 or email halecirc@k-state.edu.
