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

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.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan allows students, faculty, staff, and alumni to request library material that the NSU 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 ILLiad 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.
