Individuals must present their Dependent UGACARDs and the UGA Libraries' Dependent Voucher, signed by the sponsoring UGA-affiliated person, to library staff in either the Main, Science, Curriculum Materials or Music Libraries to have library borrowing privileges assigned.
Dependents of currently employed faculty and staff and currently enrolled students at the University of Georgia are permitted to borrow materials from the Main, Science, Curriculum Materials, and Music Libraries. The Libraries notify dependents of any and all obligations incurred. Final responsibility for these obligations is assumed by the sponsoring faculty, staff or student, agreed to by the signature on the Dependent Voucher.
Dependent borrowing privileges are based on the continuing employment of the UGA faculty/staff member or the current enrollment of the UGA student. Library card expiration dates for dependents are set according to established Library protocol: limit of 1 year for a faculty/staff dependent and the end of the current semester for a student dependent. Borrowing privileges may be renewed as appropriate with submission of a new form . Termination of a dependent relationship will also terminate these borrowing privileges. If borrowing privileges are requested, please note the following:
I understand that, if necessary, the Libraries will make a reasonable attempt to retrieve any materials borrowed by this dependent. However, I assume responsibility for any overdue fines, replacement charges, processing charges and damage fees assigned by the Libraries for all library materials not cleared from the dependent's name by the appropriate library. Also, I understand that in order to request borrowing privileges for my dependent, my own library records must be clear of all obligations.
