Proxy for the Library Account

University lecturers at the University of Siegen can grant a proxy to up to 3 persons (e.g. auxiliary staff or secretarial staff) in order to

  • place orders and reservations for media from the holdings of the Siegen University Library,
  • place interlibrary loan requests and to
  • view the library account and perform account functions, such as loan period renewals, on a substitute basis.

It is not possible to limit the proxy to only individual functions.

Both, the proxy grantor and the proxy taker, must have a valid library card or a USiCard activated for library use. With the proxy form you declare which person you want to authorize. Please return the completed and signed authorization form to the library in person, by in-house mail, or by e-mail (

A proxy must be revoked or its validity extended by the grantor of the proxy.

Persons provided with a proxy do not need an additional password or a separate library card, but log in to the Katalog plus with their own personal access ID to perform actions on behalf of the person granting the proxy. There you can select whether the subsequent actions should be performed for your own library account or for the authorizer's library account.
E-mail notifications, automatically generated by this, will always go to the e-mail address stored in the corresponding library account.


The library card of the person granting the proxy must still be presented for borrowing.
