Research Assistant Cards

The Mary Church Terrell Main Library offers Research Assistant Cards to any Oberlin College faculty or staff with the desire to share access to their library account.

This service is primarily for the purpose of summer, semester, or winter term research that would require a student, assistant, or secretary, to pick up library materials on behalf of the faculty or staff member. There are other legitimate reasons to want to share account access.

We strongly discourage patrons borrowing books in their own name for other borrowers, and we do not allow patrons to check books out in another's name without this authorization.

You may request a Research Assistant Library Card authorizing a research assistant or secretary to borrow books in your name by filling out the form on this page. This card will be attached to your record for checking out materials. In requesting this card, you are accepting responsibility for all materials checked out in this manner. These cards may be transferred to new assistants at your discretion.

Contact us if you have any questions or wish to deactivate a Research Assistant Card.

Research Assistant Card Request

I understand that all library materials borrowed using this card are my responsibility, including the return, in good condition, when due or when requested.
