Proxies cannot access your Emory personal ID, password, or contact information. Proxy privileges end August 31 of each year.
To submit a proxy request, please complete the online Proxy Request Form. Please have ready the name and employee ID number of the faculty who needs a proxy and the name and student ID number of the student who will be the proxy. If you have any questions, contact Ask a Librarian.
