Proxy Checkout Policy


Faculty members at WTAMU may select an individual to be their proxy at the Cornette Library. This individual may borrow materials in the faculty member’s name. When an item is checked out by proxy, it shows up on the faculty member’s record – not the proxy’s.

The Cornette Library reserves the right to deny service to faculty and proxies with delinquent accounts.

Any questions concerning Proxy Checkout policy or procedure can be answered by Circulation staff at (806) 651-2223.

Instructions for Faculty

A faculty member may choose one proxy patron to check out books on the faculty member’s patron record. The faculty member must complete the Faculty Application Form for Proxy Checkout Permission Microsoft Word each semester they wish to use a proxy. Forms are also available at the Circulation Desk. Completed and signed forms must be brought to the Circulation Desk, or scanned and emailed to circulation.

Circulation staff will email the faculty member when their Faculty Application Form for Proxy Checkout Permission has been processed. This email will indicate that the proxy may begin checking out books for the faculty member. The Proxy Checkout Agreement will be attached to the email. The proxy must complete and sign a Proxy Checkout Agreement each time they check out books for the faculty member.

Library materials are state property and the faculty member is wholly responsible for all materials checked out in their name by a proxy, with no exceptions.

Instructions for Proxy

The Proxy must show their own Buffalo Gold Card when checking out books for a faculty member.

The Proxy must sign a Proxy Checkout Agreement each time they check out items for a faculty member. The Proxy Checkout Agreement will be emailed to the faculty member when their Faculty Application Form for Checkout Permission has been processed. Copies of the Proxy Checkout Agreement are also available at the Circulation Desk.

An itemized receipt of items checked out will be emailed to the faculty member.
