Faculty may authorize their student research assistants (RA) to charge out library material in their names. A Proxy Borrower Registration Form must be signed by the faculty member and the student (RA). Completed forms are submitted to the library for processing. It is very important that faculty members with authorized Proxy borrowers on their account frequently monitor their library account for item due dates. Over due and Lost Item fees can become costly if account is left unattended.
The faculty/staff member will be financially responsible for all transactions made by proxy borrowers on their account. Law faculty does not pay fines or fees to the Law Library only to all other UH libraries.
Professor has to request items online and the RA could pick up items with the proxy card.
In the case of a UH affiliated grad student they can just request the item online using their own account and then make it a proxy charge at the point of check out.
It is the faculty/staff members responsibility to inform the library when to remove a proxy borrower.
To set up Proxy borrowing privileges, the Law School faculty and his/her proxy borrower must read the conditions and sign this Proxy Borrower Registration form. When completed, the form should be emailed to ellenrae [at] hawaii [dot] edu.
After the registration has been inputted, the Proxy Borrower will be sent an email that they can now request the library items for the faculty member.
The Law Library's front desk staff will receive and process this special proxy borrower request. The Proxy borrower will then receive an email to schedule a date/time for pick up.
