Research Assistant Library Cards are separate borrower’s cards issued to authorized Research Assistants (RAs) in the faculty member’s name. Materials will receive the same loan treatment as a regular faculty loan. Research Assistants can check out non-circulating materials and other restricted items with their RA card. Faculty are subject to fines (according to the policy of the lending library) and will be responsible for all charges accrued and for the items checked out. The faculty member will receive overdue notices, pickup notices, and bills for items checked out on this card, with the RA’s name attached. To obtain a Research Assistant Library Card, the faculty member must complete the Research Assistant authorization form. These forms are available at the Davis Library circulation desk.
