Services for Faculty
Before using the Five College "Request Item" service or the Interlibrary Loan service on behalf of a faculty or staff member, you must submit a research assistant proxy library card form. Print out the form below, complete both sections, and bring it to the service desk in Young Library. You will be issued a proxy library card.
You may request Five College books on behalf of a Smith faculty or staff member, using your proxy library card. For Five College journals, journal articles or books not accessible via "Request Item" (e.g., art and music books), see the next section.
Use interlibrary loan (ILL) to request materials not owned by the Smith College Libraries and not available via Request Item.
