Borrower Privilege

To be eligible to borrow books, CDs, DVDs and other library materials, Library staff will create a user profile for you in Alma – our online public access and integrated library system. Borrowing privilege is solely for the use of the person registered and is not transferable. However, borrowing can be effected through the use of a proxy that is approved by the registered user.

Study Zones

There are different study zones in the library depicting different permissible noise limits. Ask Circulation Desk staff for the zone or accommodation that best meets your needs or preference.

Loan Periods

Unless prior authorization has been granted, loan periods are 5 working days (excluding weekends). Loans are renewable for an additional 5 days. Borrowed materials must be duly returned to the Law Library as the Library is unable to pick up materials from patron’s place of business.
