Loan periods for books borrowed through the University Library will vary depending on the material requested and the University Library's policies.

Law School faculty and staff may request books from the University Library or the Science Library using the forms below. Books will be checked out and sent through campus mail to the faculty office. Receipt of a requested book may take up to five days.
