Proxy Account for IU Indianapolis Faculty

A proxy account will allow your assistant to act on your behalf while conducting business at University Library. While the library does not charge overdue fines for faculty, this benefit is not extended to your assistant if they have checked out materials for you on their personal account. We highly recommend that if your assistant is going to be checking out materials for you, that you have a proxy account set up for them. 

In order to establish a proxy account for your assistant, please email John Cooper, Circulation Team Manager, from your official Campus email account requesting that your assistant have proxy rights on your card. Please include their full name and University ID number. You will receive a response via email when the proxy card is available for pickup. Your assistant should present their University ID when picking up the proxy card.

To apply for a Proxy Card email John Cooper, Circulation Team Manager.
