All current ASU students, faculty, and staff may borrow materials from the Law Library. A Sun Card or photo ID must be presented when checking out library material.
Loan periods are based on your borrower type and the type of material checked out. Exceptions include:
Law Library material may be renewed twice so long as the item has not been requested by another borrower. After the second renewal, the item must be brought to the Circulation Desk to be checked out again. Requested items, Reserve materials, videos, and DVDs are not renewable.
Law Library material can be renewed:
Library materials can only be renewed in person after an account block has been placed.
The Law Library has two book return locations for your convenience. The book return inside the library is located at the east end of the Circulation Desk and is accessible only during hours the Law Library is open. The outside book drop is located immediately north of the Law Library's front doors and is accessible only during hours the library is closed. Books may be returned to any ASU Library. Click here for a list of exterior book return locations on all ASU campuses.
There is a 30-day grace period for most Law Library materials. Items not returned or renewed within 30 days of the due date will result in a block on your library account. If your account is blocked, you will not be able to check out new material or renew online. Fees are assessed on the 91st day overdue for ASU affiliates and the 31st day overdue for Law Alumni, State Bar, and Community Borrowers. A $10.00 fine plus a replacement cost will be charged for each item not returned or renewed before fee assessment. The replacement charge will be cancelled if the item is returned undamaged. Items may be renewed once all fees have been paid.
Exceptions: Videos, DVDs and recalled items from ASU Libraries do not have a grace period and must be returned by the due date to avoid fines. Study Skills materials have a seven day grace period, and will be billed the replacement charge and overdue fee on the eighth day overdue.
Library notices are sent periodically as a courtesy. Failure to receive notices does not relieve you of the responsibility of returning items on time or paying fees owed. You are responsible for monitoring your library account and keeping your contact information current. Notices are sent via email to the email address in your library account. Contact the Circulation Desk if you would like to receive notices in paper. You may add or change your email address through the My Library Account link.
Library fines totaling more than $10 or not paid within one month will result in a block on your library account. Fines for Law Library materials may be paid:
For questions about Law Library fines or to appeal a charge, contact Carrie Henteleff at 480-965-7114.
Refunds: Law Library materials paid for and returned to the library in good condition within a year of payment may be eligible for a partial refund of the replacement charge. Refunds will not be issued beyond one year after payment. Fines are not refundable.
