Faculty Library Assistant Program
Faculty Library Assistants (FLAs) at Criss Library
The following tasks may be completed by UNO FLAs:
- Main Service: checkout items, returns, place and pick-up hold/recalled items, request searches, pay replacement costs, and submit Faculty Study Room applications.
- Interlibrary Loan: requests, pick up, and return items.
- Reserve: add and delete Reserve items.
Faculty members who wish to authorize an FLA to take care of library business for them may complete this form. Each faculty member may have a total of two FLAs per semester. Authorizing faculty are responsible for all items checked out on the FLA account.
The signed application will be kept on file to verify your FLA's authorization, and renewal notices will be emailed to you near the end of each semester. FLA's will need to present their UNO ID card and inform library staff they are Faculty Library Assistants.
New Faculty Library Assistants
After a faculty sponsor has authorized you to be a library assistant, your name will be placed on a list of current assistants.
When you wish to conduct business for your faculty sponsor, please give the library staff member on duty your name and the name of your sponsoring faculty member. You will be asked to produce a photo ID such as your student ID (MavCard) or a driver's license to ensure that you are an authorized assistant.
You will not need your sponsor's ID card or library account number. Anything you check out in your capacity as a library assistant from the Main Service Desk will be charged to a special account under your faculty sponsor's name.
Library Assistants should not check out any materials for faculty sponsors on their personal library accounts. You are responsible for any items charged on your account number, including any resulting fines or replacement costs.
