Borrowing Library Materials
Circulation and Interlibrary Loan
All library requests for books, articles, and other resources can be submitted to your librarian liaison or Tara Mospan. Library staff will retrieve items from the Law Library collection and request material from ASU library on your behalf. Items not available through ASU will be requested through interlibrary loan.
Requested books are checked out to your library account and delivered to your law school mailbox. Documents will be delivered via email to your ASU email address.
Law Faculty may check out most Law Library materials for one year with unlimited renewals. Materials on Course Reserve may be borrowed for 4 hours. ASU Library and interlibrary loan books have different policies, so be sure to check My Library Account to keep track of your due dates to avoid fees.
Renewals for eligible items will be automatically processed five days before the due date and are unlimited. Automatic renewals cannot be processed if your borrowing privileges have been suspended due to expired registration or fines over $25.
Interlibrary loan books are not automatically renewed. To request a renewal, please use our ILL Renewal form.
Law Library materials checked out to law faculty will not be recalled, but we may ask you to return a book if it has been requested by another borrower.
Books borrowed from ASU Library are subject to recall and recall late fees are strictly enforced. If an item checked out to your account is recalled, you will receive an email alerting you to the change in due date.
You may authorize another person to check out books in your name by applying for a proxy account. To apply, submit the completed, signed form to the Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor or email it to Carrie Henteleff.
You are responsible for all library materials checked out to your library account, including those checked out by proxy.
The Law Library has two book return locations for your convenience, on the 3rd and 5th floors of the BCLS building. The 3rd floor book return is located at the Circulation Desk. The 5th floor book return is located inside the Hirsch Reading Room. Law Library materials may also be returned to any ASU Library.
Law interlibrary loan books must be returned to the Law Library.
