Circulation Policies


General Circulation

Books from our circulating collection can be checked out by law students for three weeks. In order to check out law library materials, present your valid Liberty One identification card. Due dates are printed on a slip at the time of check-out. Circulating materials may be renewed once unless there is a hold on the item. Renewals can be performed in person at the Circulation Desk or over the telephone during regular library hours. All materials are subject to recall once the original borrowing period has expired. Materials needed for course reserve are subject to recall at any time.

Due to the specialized nature of the law collection, many materials may be used only in the Law Library. For example, statutes, session laws, reporters, citators, digests, encyclopedias, microforms, individual volumes from multi-volume treatises, loose-leaf services, reference materials, periodicals, and reserve materials do not circulate outside the Law Library.

Reserve Materials

Reserve materials must be requested at the Circulation Desk. Materials are on reserve due to high demand or at the request of a faculty member for a particular course. You can locate material on reserve for a particular course at the “Course Reserve” tab in AD FONTES, the Law Library Catalog System. Most reserve materials may be borrowed for four hours.
