Visiting Researchers / Scholars

Visiting researchers/scholars must have UGA ID cards to borrow materials from the Main, Science, Curriculum Materials, and Music Libraries during their stay at the University. The sponsoring Department or Faculty must assume responsibility for any library-related obligations that might be incurred by the visitor. Visiting researchers/scholars must bring their UGA ID cards and the Visitor Voucher form to the Main Library Circulation Office, completed and signed by their sponsoring UGA Faculty member, to receive borrowing privileges at UGA Libraries.

If borrowing privileges are requested, the sponsoring faculty member must print, complete, and sign the Responsibility Voucher for Faculty/Staff Visitors

Please read the following before completing the form:

I understand that, if necessary, the Libraries will make a reasonable attempt to retrieve any materials borrowed by this visitor. However, I assume responsibility for any replacement charges, processing charges and damage fees assigned by the Libraries for all library materials not cleared from the visitor's name by the appropriate library. Also, I understand that in order to request borrowing privileges for this visitor, my own library records must be clear of all obligations.
