Designate an Authorized User

Faculty and Staff may authorize individual students (or other staff members) to check out materials in their name from Swem Library’s collection. Please be aware that you are ultimately responsible for any materials checked out on your account.

This form will only allow individuals to check out Swem Library items. You must designate Authorized Users separately for other departments. You can designate Authorized Users for Interlibrary Loan through your ILLiad account.

Fill out this form for each individual who may check out items for you. Authorized users are required to present a picture ID at each visit in order to take items out.

These permissions will be deleted at the end of the current semester unless you designate a specific expiration date.

By signing below, I authorize the aforementioned authorized user to check out materials in my name from Swem Library during the current semester. I understand that I am ultimately responsible for the return of materials to Swem Library. I will pay replacement costs for any materials that are lost or damaged. Swem Library Circulation staff will contact you to confirm that this form was submitted by you within 48 hours.
