Proxy Borrower Application

Proxy guidelines: 
  • When borrowing materials on behalf of a faculty member, proxy borrowers must: 
    • Inform the circulation desk staff that they are a proxy borrower.
    • Present the active proxy borrower card along with their New School ID.
Proxy borrower policy:
  • The faculty member assumes full responsibility for all material borrowed by their proxy borrower.
  • Proxy borrowers are authorized to borrow library items in the faculty member's name. In order to request material other than on-site items for faculty use, please see a library clerk for assistance.
  • Both the faculty member and proxy borrower must be currently employed and/or be enrolled in a degree granting program at The New School. Both parties must have valid New School IDs and a library patron record cleared of fines and overdue books.
  • Proxy borrower's privileges are issued for a length of time determined by the faculty member. If a faculty member no longer wants a proxy to borrow materials on their behalf, they must contact the library.
  • Proxy cards are non-transferable and non-renewable. A new form is required for any changes.
