Account Proxy Service

The Account Proxy Service gives SUNY Potsdam faculty and staff the ability to authorize campus assistants to borrow library items on their behalf (including teaching assistants, graduate assistants, administrative assistants, etc.)  Initial service requirements for the User are as follows:


  • The User must come to the Library to setup the initial proxy account.
  • The account can ONLY be created by circulation staff (student workers CANNOT create these accounts).
  • The User must bring their SUNYCard to setup the account.

Service Guidelines

The User will be required to print out and submit an Account Proxy Service Form that will outline the rules of service and define User responsibilities.

To schedule an appointment to setup service, email the circulation department.
