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. Materials that routinely circulate can be checked out by law students for a period of two weeks. Codes, reporters, loose leafs, 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./SmartCard or NSU Alumni Association membership card. If you do not have a membership card, please contact the NSU Alumni Association at 954-262-2118 or email alumni@nova.edu.

This 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. However, you must comply with the rules of these libraries when using their materials and facilities.

Reserve materials can also be checked out for a period of three hours. Overnight circulation is available for Reserve materials.

Inter-Library Loans

Inter-library loans can be obtained for NSU Law students, faculty and staff. If the Law Library does not have a needed item, it can obtain the material from another library via the inter-library loan process. It may take a few days to complete the inter-library loan process. Stop by the Reference Desk to obtain an Inter-Library Loan Request form. A complete citation is helpful when requesting material.
