Borrowing Privileges

NSU students, faculty and staff have borrowing privileges each semester that they are enrolled in law school. NSU College of Law alumni also have borrowing privileges. Most materials circulate for a period of three weeks.  More information on how long materials and study rooms/study carrels may be checked out is available on the Panza Maurer Law Library Policies page (  Codes, reporters, loose-leaf materials, periodicals, multi-volume series, and books with pocket parts do not circulate. Materials can be renewed once if another patron has not placed a hold on the item. To renew, either stop by the Circulation Desk or call 954.262.6202.

To obtain borrowing privileges, stop by the Circulation Desk with your NSU College of Law I.D./SharkCard. You must have your Shark card with you to checkout library materials or study rooms/carrels. Alumni may checkout print resources by providing photo ID so that we may check their name against our alumni list. Alumni may access the electronic resources by registering with the alumni association. Please contact the NSU Alumni Association at 954-262-2118 or email to register.

Becoming a registered alumni will entitle you to borrowing privileges at the Panza Maurer Law Library as well as the Library, Research & Information Technology (Main) and Health Professions Division (HPD) Libraries.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan allows students, faculty, staff, and alumni to request library material that the NSU Florida library system does not have from a library that does. The first link below explains how to place an interlibrary loan request.  The second link will bring you to the request homepage where you can place your request.  Delivery and processing times may vary; however, loans typically arrive within seven business days. Please call the reference desk and speak to a librarian if you require any assistance placing an interlibrary loan request.
