Authorized borrowers

Please note: Authorized Borrowers are being discontinued with the implementation of two new services.

Faculty may now choose between one of two new services “Sponsored Borrower” system or the new “Proxy Borrower” system. The new Sponsored Borrower system allows a faculty member to request borrowing privileges for non-McGill people. The new Proxy Borrower system allows a faculty member to have one or more individuals borrow materials on their behalf. Please review the information for both services and fill out the form to request the type of account that fits your situation.

Please note that the Sponsored Borrower and Proxy Borrower services do not include remote access to the Library’s electronic resources, nor does it give you access to all Library services and resources.

Please contact a branch library service desk if you have any questions about this transition. Additionally, contact a branch service desk if materials are checked out on the expiring Authorized Borrower account than need to be transferred to one of the new types of accounts.
