Faculty Authorizations

Faculty Authorizations at Colorado State University Libraries permit current faculty, staff, affiliated faculty and university retirees to authorize others to checkout materials in the authorizing person’s name.

If you authorize someone to pick up materials for you, they must present their own PHOTO IDENTIFICATION. Remember that any items checked out by authorized individuals go on your account and you will be responsible for each one. There is no way to track a transaction back to the authorized person should you discover an item on your record that is unaccounted for, or unrelated to your studies, etc.

Authorizations are good only for the current academic year (through August 31st) or through a date prior to August 31st that you specify in your request.

To request Faculty Authorization for your account, send an email to Barbara Risheill with the following information (we are no longer taking paper request forms):

Your name
Your ID#
Your Department
Your office phone number
Name of authorized person (date their authorization should expire)
(list as many individuals as you wish)

Please send this request from your University email account. This will to verify the request as authentic from you, and serve as an electronic signature.

The Libraries provide this service for your convenience. You may cancel your authorizations at any time by contacting Barbara Risheill.
