Delegation of Privileges

Faculty may delegate borrowing privileges to their teaching assistants and/or research assistants, so that Vaughan materials may be borrowed by their student staff in the name of the faculty member. Acadia faculty may delegate borrowing privileges under the following conditions:

  • Loans will be signed out in the name of the faculty only for teaching assistants or research assistants who are authorized. The TA or RA, who must present his/her Acadia ID for identification purposes, must indicate to Access Desk staff the name of the faculty member to whose account the items are to be checked out.
  • All Vaughan material borrowed upon request of a faculty member will be the responsibility of the faculty member. Overdue notices and any fines are the responsibility of the faculty member.

To delegate borrowing privileges, please send an email to indicating the name of the teaching or research assistant(s) to whom you wish to delegate borrowing privileges as well as the date when these privileges should end.
