  • Proctoring is available at Scranton Memorial Library by appointment on weekdays when the library is open.

  • The student must make arrangements for the delivery of any exam to Scranton Memorial Library, whether it be via post or email.
  • Scranton Memorial Library staff members proctoring exams will complete any required documentation forms provided by the college or university.


  • The student is responsible for arriving at the library on time with appropriate photo identification and any documents or supplies required to complete the exam.
  • While staff members are able to check on a student periodically, they will not be able to perform ongoing physical monitoring of the student during the exam.
  • Please also note that, in a public space such as a library, complete silence cannot be guaranteed.
  • The proctor will enforce any time limits or other rules set by the student’s testing institution.
  • The library is not responsible for test sessions that are interrupted by events beyond the library’s control, such as power outages, or computer hardware or software failures.
  • The library reserves the right to substitute a proctor in the event of the original proctor’s absence.
